After finding this site, Veteranaid.org, I determined that my father, a WWII vet, was eligible for the Aid and Attendance Pension. Following the website's instructions, I filed a STATEMENT IN SUPPORT OF CLAIM, form 21-4138 with the wording recommended. I mailed the form to the proper VA Center using certified mail, return receipt request as suggested by the website on 9 March 2015. To date, I have not recieved anythng back from VA, including the receipt requested. I tracked the form sent and USPS showed that it was received by the VA Center on 13 March. I think that they are chosing to ignore the form since they are coming out with new procedures for filing, including having to use their new forms, effective 24 March 2015.
