When should I apply for caregiver claim for my wife? I am 100% VA and disability retire on May 19. Was wanting to apply for caregiver since she has to do a lot of stuff for me that I can't do anymore. Should I wait till I retire or apply now?

Your doctors need to 100% support this of the claim will be DOA, the caregiver social workers will call you in for an interview and an exam.

Can you apply and receive comprehensive assistance for family caregiver while going through IDES or do you have to wait until you're a veteran?

The DoD has its own caregiver program, as referred to above.
