July 31, we mailed our application for A&A Pension for my parents. Lots of supporting documents in that envelope! We mailed it "return receipt requested" of course. My dad was in the Navy in WWII. Both parents have Alzheimers' Disease and moved to a care facility in October. We've requested the benefits be retroactive to then, since we've heard that's sometimes done. We tried to work with one of those help-you-through-the-process companies and got roadblocked. I'll post more about that when I have more time. I'll update this topic as we work through the process.
