Hello all. We are applying for the A&A for my MIL who is a widow (husband killed in Vietnam). She recieved monthly checks from the VA and I wondered if I am supposed to put that file # in the spot on the first page that asks about prior claim? This is the only thing I have not filled out for her. She moved to an assisted living on April 1st and her money is going to be gone by November and my husband and I are going to have to come up with the difference which will be about $1000 a month and it is going to be a squeeze for us and this would really help us out each month when he cash is gone. Thanks.
