Apply For VA Benefits?

My mother just passed away. My father made $49,930 in 2010. Should he apply for the three months of VA benefits he's entitled to ($4,680) or would that negatively affect his taxes? I need to decide this soon and his tax preparer is not available. Thank you so much.

My husband is in the army and he just got deployed, now he is telling me he wants a divorce. I dont want him to claim our kids so is there any way I can file for income tax even though I was a housewife. Many wives have told me they have but I'm not sure how they did it.

DAMN VA!!!!

As a dependent in High school I was awarded Live Apportionment Benfits and was able to receive a monthly income as long as I attended school/ college. I recieved the benfits for 5 years while enrolled in college until I was a Junior in college and then they stoped and I recived a letter of debit from the VA becasue THEY (VA) realized that THEY (VA) awarded my father to much money, which I had no control of or dealings with at any time!

Have tried to fix my hole adult life to and explain that I never asked for the benfits nor ever filled out paper work to recieve them in the first place and every year they would garnish my taxes. Now that I have been married for 7 months, will they garnish my taxes if she and I were to fill joint income? Thank you for the help!
