I applied for aid and attendance, (June 1,2015) for my mom. I sent a paper copy. About 1 month later, I checked ebenefits.gov. There was a request for other, for service records, from the National Archives. I sent a copy of my Dad's Notice of Separation, with a seal on it because DD 214 was not used yet, with my mailed application. It said documents past due. So I mailed , faxed, and uploaded, a copy of my only other original document. It says submitted but, not reviewed. Then for awhile it said preparation for decision. Now it still says documents past due and development letter sent. In the meantime, if I pay her electric bill and other utilities, from my account, will she still be eligible? My mom would still be paying for at home caregiver(myself), out of her bank account. Her savings is just about gone. Thank you for all of your help.
