We received papers stating that my mom was granted a death pension and in addition an allowance for aid and attendance. This is pending on a fidiciuary being appointed. Mom is now in hospice, after having a stroke while at her assisted living, and is even more incompetent that before. The doctors provided us with a letter stating this and the case worker told my sister, who is petitioning for being appointed fidiciuary, that she should write a letter asking that the 90 day period be waived due to the circumstances. First of all, I'm amazed, the claim was only received January 8 of this year. Second what is the death pension that they said she was granted. Is that just tied into the aid and attendance?
