Jhettinger and Wilson, thank you for this post. I didn’t know about this and found out I’m eligible. Because my PALS was in military prior to 9/11, I cannot apply until after October 1. I can wait!!

Hello All, My wife applied October 1. We got a phone call today from VA to schedule a telephone call assessment of both me as pALS and her as caregiver. They said a 2 hour call! Have any of ya’ll been through this? It would be great to get information on what to expect.

Thank you, Tom

We just did this, wasn't hard and since my husband is now total care some of the questions didn't really apply. Ours took about an hour but she did say it went faster because of his care level.

Jhettinger and Frankb....

"Thanks, that is what this VA Forum is for."

I get the hint.

It's a Forum for all topics concerning Veteran matters,
politics (which is a big part of Veteran Affairs) and or
general conversation and comments.

You have felt free to comment (hint/like)... and so will I.

"Someone please explain..."

(https://www.caregiver.va.gov/pdfs/MIssionAct/)

I am up on Veteran Affairs.... I didn't have to ask a Forum
to be aware/question this. It's on the VA web site.

(If your spouse is a Veteran diagnosed with ALS or any
other disability and for some reason he/she is aloof to
their service benefits (?)....all you have to do is call the
PVA, DAV, or others and they will be eager to help you.
You can even call the VA!
Call them first before you seek help or direction from
a forum.)

Welcome Home Brothers... if you are Vietnam Vets.

If not... thank you for your service.
