My husband just passed away on the 27 of March 2023.   He was hospitalised for having 2 strokes which damaged his right leg. He has been in and out hospital every two days up around March 19, when hospital sent him home on hospice, and he lived three days.  He actually died of multi organ failure.  Kidneys completely quit, liver failed and he had to have his stomach drained 4 times, each time they got 6 litres off him. He ha filed for hypertension in 91, and was denied.  It is in his medical records he had hypertension in service.  By looking up other stuff while he was in hospital on va site and had it, I saw hypertension now can be service connected to agent orange.  We had planned to file but things were just moving so fast.  Can I file a pack act claim on his behave now and maybe get the reto pay.  Yes he was on two different meds for hypertension.  I would apreciacate any help you can advise.  Thank you ahead of time.  He was 100% pt/guide since 14.

What was his official cause of death? I think you have to file for DIC (survivor's benefits).  I don't know if he fits under the 10 year rule for DIC.  If his cause of death is service-connected then you can get DIC.  I would wait for some more input here.  I am pretty sure there is a way for you to get DIC.  Was he getting treatment at a VA hospital?
