I just don't understand. My mother-in-law became ill and the aid and assistance was applied for by my sister-in-law. My mother-in-law's husband was in WWII in the Navy and deceased. The Chattanooga office said that my mother-in-law qualified for about $800 monthly benefits. Unfortunately she died before she saw the first check. My father was in the army during WWII and is now in a nursing home with dementia. We tried to file papers for him and the representative in West Tennessee said even if he qualifies (and from everything I have read, he does) he will only get about $20 a month. He said that no one gets much on this aid and assistance pension and that my mother-in-law would not have gotten near that amount. Does any of this sound correct to anyone? From everything I have read on this site, my dad should get a lot more.
