I have pages from the case. He also was sick when he was discharged and did go to the Veterans hospital for 3 months. They never gave him 100% for his problem until he could no longer work but he had that condition for more than 10 years. A Judge in Washington reviewed the case but all my letters were not sent to make it a fair case. I do not know what he was sent.I'm just wondering if I could get a Widows Pension? Thank you.

I am sorry to hear this. Did VA give you a statement in writing explaining why your claim for the pension was denied? Have you applied for social security survivor's benefits?

No to both questions. Just that we did not have the full pension for 10 years . We went all the time to Madison and they never would rate him 100% Even though it was very bad. Could not work. I was sorry they didn't give me back what we were getting before they gave him the 100%.They took everything away. I wish I could have had a lawyer to help me. I will try to find out where to call Social Security Survivor's Office. Thank you. I would like to end this how do I do this? Could you get me to the Credit Office? Thank you
Estate Lawyer: N Cal Attorney, Attorney replied 1 year ago
https://www.ssa.gov/forms/ssa-10.htmllists the information you will need to apply for survivor's benefits. I am not sure what you meant by the Credit Office. Do you mean customer service?

Thank you but I think I will call and see if I am entitled to anything. Thank you again. I was so down on the VA I just let it go and tonight I hoped I might still have hope. Just Answer will charge me the$ 5.00 that they quoted. Thank you again. You were very kind to this old lady.

Thank you. You can get a free consultation from some of the social security attorneys listed by location here and some of the veterans benefits attorneys listed here. Please follow up this with a local attorney. I hope this information is helpful.
