Thanks Bigrex and csat members for posting the information so veterans can find out about benefits. This is a great resource.

We brought the filled in Attendance Allowance application in to the dva office today. Didn't speak with a case manager, instead they just took the application at the front counter and sent me on my way. I was wondering how long it would be before a decision is made if anyone has any experience with this? Thanks.

It really depends on the situation. My CM intiailly approved me for AA, and then later increased it, during a home visit. Unfortunately I believe that authority has since been stripped from them.

Thanks bigrex. We will only have to wait and see what decision is made. I did get an email back from VAC on my  dva account and they said because I was 100 % + I was entitled to the Attendance Allowance so I guess it depends on the degree they award me if they do. Thanks again folks.
Side note: I don't have a case manager anymore so I wonder who they will assign to this application?

FCRB

Post by Slaket on Wed 03 May 2017, 06:52

Is the FCRB actually going to switch to 1,000.00 per month or was that just a carrot held out as part of the budget.
I can't seem to find any information WRT this what so ever..

Thanks

Slaket,

To add from what was posted from Vet1234, the name is also changing to Caregiver Recognition Benefit.
