    My father was approved for the full pension amount. 1,788 .He is 87 years old and in declining health.
    Can the money go towards other expenses not just the payment to his caretaker ( which I don't believe will be 1,788 per month ) Do these expenses have to all be medical related?
    Do we need to keep records of all this ?
    Are we required to show these to the VA every year?

    Congratulations on getting through the process!

    You can use the pension for whatever he needs.

    The VA no longer requires an annual Eligibility Verification Report.

    You do not mention whether a Fiduciary appointment was/is required for him. If yes, then there are different reportings that do take place in that case.
