Hi All, I have gathered almost all of the documents necessary to file a completed application. But I've been reading comments on here and many talk about an Intent to File Form. Is that a necessary first step? Also, my grandmother receives 3475.00 per month from SS and her pension. Her medical expenses are under 1000 (750/month for caregiver) and her rent is 2000/month. She has no other income or assests. Can she expect to receive the full benefit amount? Any info is appreciated!
