Hi, My mom is the widow of a WWII vet. she is 88. 3 In 2012 I sought the A&A benefit for her through a NC VA benefits office. I was told that she may NOT receive both Social Security and A & A, that it is an either/or scenario. My sister, who lives in Ga. has been told that is NOT the case. That she(mom) may receive both. Can you clarify this please?
