    I am preparing the form 21-534 to apply for Aid and Assistance benefits for my mother. Just today I found the information to submit an informal application, VA Form 21-4138, to get the application on record while I am compiling the information for the formal application. Other than the reference to 38 CFR 3.155 Informal Claims. and the statement about appointing a fiducuary as soon as possible, is there any other information that I need to provide in this statement section of the form?
    Thank you!

    have it signed by the vet or surviving spouse. period.
    you can't use poa to sign it.
    attach copy of discharge if you have it, if not don't worry.

    Make a copy and send it registered.`

    Welcome and good luck!

    Also do a 21-0845 with it appointing you as an approved 3rd party so the VA will talk with you about the application. What state does the applicant live in? You need to mail to the correct pension center.
