I was ready to mail my mother's claim for a death pension, but at the last minute in reviewing some recent posts, noticed one pertaining to securing a "Statement of Occupancy" from an ALF. Per that suggestion, I requested the Alzheimer's & Dementia Care ALF where my mother resides to assist me in getting that document completed, but today they have informed me that they do not have nor do they utilize any sort of "Statement of Occupancy" although they have already completed the VA 21-0779 which indicates the monthly expense, and the date of admission for my mother's application. Will the VA consider her application incomplete without this "Statement of Occupancy" and if so, is there some alternate documentation I could provide? To recap, in support of my mother claim, I'm sending: 21-534EZ 21-084521-2680 21-0779 21P-8416 Deceased spouse's military discharge, death certificate, marriage license/certificate, SS letter, income/asset verification, and recurring medical expense info. Thank you for your continued assistance. This site and your service is certainly a light at the end of a long dark tunnel.
