Aid & attendance for Alzheimer's vet on Long Island

Discussion in 'Veteran Application' started by Caregiversunite, Oct 14, 2015.

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for this site! I want to get A&A for my uncle with Alzheimer's in a nursing home. Do I need to be appointed a fiduciary or can I just fill out another form? Does anyone know of a service on Long Island that would handle filing the application for him? Thank you for any assistance you can provide!

    Caregiversunite,

    I'm glad you find VeteranAid.org to be a helpful website! You do not address the Fiduciary issue until the VA makes a ruling of incompetency. Fill out the forms needed for the application which you can find listed on VeteranAid's How to Apply page (http://www.veteranaid.org/apply.php) and mail those in, always return receipt. If the VA makes a ruling of incompetency, then you will go through the process of appointing yourself the Fiduciary.

    We do not recommend using an outside source to help in filing the A&A application, which is why this site was created to help people go through the application process themselves for the veteran and/or the veteran's spouse.
     
  3. Thanks Kaylin! For proof of income for his pension, I only have the monthly bank statement showing the pension direct deposit. Is that sufficient?

    Caregiversunite,
    Yes, you need to include a bank statement to show proof of current "countable income". You are welcome!
