Two years ago my sister gave her daughters $14,000. Since then her health has deteriorated greatly and she has had to go to a nursing home. She qualifies in all ways for the A&A benefit, except possibly for the monetary gifts. I cannot find on this forum or on the web whether the VA has adopted the proposed rule A073. Do we have a chance if we send in the application? Or will it be automatically disqualified? Thank everyone for the shared information. And especially thanks to Debbie providing the leadership and assistance here.
