I've read on this forum that filing for A&A as a fully developed claim ("FDC") is generally not encouraged since all it takes is one mistake to land in the bottom of the pile... BUT on the VeteranAid.org site (on the page "How to Apply for the Aid & Attendance Improved Pension"), it lists two EZ forms as the required forms (21-527EZ for the veteran; 21-534EZ for the surviving spouse).... SO MY QUESTION: Doesn't the EZ form put you on the FDC track? I'm confused as to which form to use (filing for my veteran dad). BTW, has the thinking on the FDC track changed where now it's the preferred way to go?
