Hello all, Back in December 2011 my veteran dad and his wife (my mom) applied for the BASIC pension (not A & A) they were denied due to excessive income. My dad has now been officially diagnosed with Alzheimers and they have moved to Assisted Living (RCAC). They just recently applied for A & A. My parents have a very small income (only social security) and a meager savings. Based off of the countable income calculations they have negative $10,000 income per year. That leaves a deficit of roughly $800/mo. Does anyone know if that equates to an $800/mo award or is there more to it than that? Thanks!! PS My dad is 78, mom is 73.
