I completed the A&A application for my Grandfather and the VA just sent a letter that said they received it August 30th. They asked for a report from a physician about my Grandmother's state of health for an explanation of her need for foster care, for me to fill in a couple of boxes with "0" on one form, and for form 21-8049 to be filled out. This letter was typed on September 9th. My Grandfather died September 7th. What do I do now? He would have qualified easily for this aid, even though it was only since July 5th that we have been paying for assistance for him, and then on August 10th moved him to a foster home. It seems that for the time of July 5th-September 7th he would have received benefits. When I did the application I stated that he was moving in to foster care on August 10th and told them the cost. Do I continue with the application? Form 21-8049 would require my Grandpa's signature so I can't do that one now. My Grandmother is still living, but is completely incapacitated.
