  •  They send me a form letter every two months (5+ / 0-)

    stating that they have my claim and that they will get to it.

    I am in better financial shape than most who must rely on DIC, so I have not pressed the VA, knowing of the huge backlog. There are others who need it more while I have a modest income from other sources, SS, and savings.

    But DIC is not automatic, and you should keep that in mind with your financial planning. I had to wait for the death certificate to file and now wait for the VA to process. Since I did not receive my 60 day letter next month, I will have to take some action, if only to make sure the file has not gone astray.
