Just applied

Just applied for this, can't see them approving it cause I still work but have issues every day and a combined DA for 70%. Anything else I should apply for while still working?

i dont think they can reduce it, as the beneficiary changes from the Vet to the caregiver.

I can't seem to find any information WRT this what so ever..

Thanks

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