You...

    VA caregiver program

    I would recommend letting your caregiver talk to the lady at the VA, she will want to know everything that you need assistance with in daily living (there is not documentation of anything required)

    VA caregiver program

    The program actually has a 45 day turn around on getting paid with the stipend.

    What should I be doing to prepare?

    My husbands took about a year and half start to finish... then once you get medically retired it taked another 4 months for va pay to kick in... so I agree with getting debt free is possible, if not save as much as you can and learn lots of patience

    Timeline after final out

    He was 70% army 80% va and we already filed for IU... we said we would take the VA pay too, but from my understanding the military still pays you until the VA is done with the reevaluation
