I just applied for education benefits, but I am 35 years old. My father is 100% disabled (for about 3-4 years). I was told when I called that it is decided case by case, and that I had up to 10 years, and I was told I should go ahead and apply.. On the website it says until age 26 or 28. Anyone have any insight on what my chances are as to getting those benefits? If anyone has experience in my case? What would make the VA consider giving me those benefits since I am much older than the deadline? Any help/advice would be appreciated.
