Q179: My late husband was diagnosed with sleep apnea. He was tested but passed away before he heard from the VA about the test results. The test confirmed what we already knew. So, how can I get a draw on his disability after his death?

A1: The only thing you could do is to file to assume his claim, if it is still open. If there is a favorable decision and your husband is due anything, then you would receive the payment. (AP) 11/5/18
