Just to say that without the assistance of this website, I doubt I would have been as successful obtaining A&A for my mother who is 89 and residing in an assisted living facility. I received approval for benefits five months after sending in the application and documentation and received the first deposit March 1, 2016. I did receive a letter regarding January and February payments being withheld as they had declared her "incompetent" to handle her financial affairs and wanted a fiduciary appointed. I followed the appeal process and it was accepted. I have happily shared this website with others who are pursuing A&A for their parent(s). One question now, I am considering selling her house and questioning whether I can do this without A&A being discontinued, as I don't want to jeopardize the A&A. I haven't consulted with an attorney yet, and thought perhaps there might be some guidance here. Thanks again.
