I am the son of a WW2 veteran and we had a problem with my fathers payments to the bank starting in January 2011 due to some changes in his accounts at the bank we had to make due to him being under the Power of Attorney because he had Alzheimer

The bank started to to send his direct deposit checks back to the VA for his disability(100% SC) without telling us first.

We tried to get the payment restored and get the money going back to his account and the VA was dragging there feet.

In Nov my father passed from the Alzheimer and now as Executor of an estate i am trying to get the money for the estate.

Our local county VA rep told my sister in law that we may never be able to get it for the estate.

i know they take back the last payment but that still leaves about $26.730 that he earned and was owed. we need part to pay his final bills and the rest is part of his estate.

i don't want to have to take this to my congressman or senator but as the Executor its part of my duties to get this solved

1. The estate is legally entitled to all funds owed to your father to include the last months payment regardless of the day of the month when he passed.

2. Reimbursement of Burial Expenses: VA will pay a burial allowance up to $2,000 if the Veteran’s death is service-connected. In such cases, the person who bore the Veteran’s burial expenses may claim reimbursement from VA.
In some cases, VA will pay the cost of transporting the remains of a Veteran whose death was service-connected to the nearest national cemetery with available gravesites. There is no time limit for filing reimbursement claims in service-connected death cases.
Burial Allowance: VA will pay a $300 burial and funeral allowance for Veterans who, at time of death, were entitled to receive pension or compensation or would have been entitled if they were not receiving military retirement pay. Eligibility also may be established when death occurs in a VA facility, a VA-contracted nursing home or a State Veterans nursing home. In cases in which the Veteran’s death was not service-connected, claims must be filed within two years after burial or cremation.
Plot Allowance: VA will pay a plot allowance when a Veteran is buried in a cemetery not under U.S. government jurisdiction if: the Veteran was discharged from active duty because of disability incurred or aggravated in the line of duty; the Veteran was receiving compensation or pension or would have been if the Veteran was not receiving military retired pay; or the Veteran died in a VA facility.
The plot allowance may be paid to the state for the cost of a plot or interment in a state-owned cemetery reserved solely for Veteran burials if the Veteran is buried without charge. Burial expenses paid by the deceased’s employer or a state agency will not be reimbursed.

Good info given here, yet a question. Did the VA recognize the POA due to your fathers condition, or was he ever considered incompetent by the VA?
