I recently submitted and Intent to File signed by my father, the veteran. At the time our intent was to move him and my mother (not a vet) to an assisted living facility. I'm now in the process of collecting the information for the A&A application. My father's health has recently declined and it is very possible that he will have passed before I complete and submit the application. That will change the need from the veteran's benefit to the spouse's benefit. Also, since my father will remain at their home until he passes and my mother will not move to an assisted living facility, the benefit will be to assist with medical bills instead of help with monthly assisted living expenses. How will this affect the process? Do I need to submit the application on behalf of my mother? Do I need to resubmit the Intent to File signed by my mother? Do the forms I need to submit change since they are no longer moving to an assisted living facility? Thank you for your help. This process is so overwhelming.
