Do you know the average amount of time for a Priority application to be processed? (WWII 93 years, legally blind) Application received by the VA in Philadelphia March 3, 2016, per the USPS. I have not received a letter stating that the application has been received yet. I did attach a cover letter stating his age and blindness and asked for priority processing. Also, I am not sure how to send in an additional piece of information. I did not know I needed a "statement of occupancy" in an assisted living. The request for Nursing Home Information, which I corrected to ALF, (Form 21-0779) question 9 is a certification that the claimant is a patient in this facility. Question 8 states the amount that he is paying. Is it necessary to send another form saying the same thing? Since they have not yet asked for this, should I be proactive and send it anyway? I know this seems anxious, but he is down to $6,000.
