Great forum, has helped alot, thanks. My Mom is now receiving $274 per month since I applied for her in November based on my Dad's service. Two questions. It looks like VA has determined, correctly, that she cannot accept the funds so what form do I submit so my brother can be the official acceptor of the funds (he's already on her joint bank account). Second, Mom is living in a independent/assisted living facility. She gets twice daily med reminders and insulin shots. From what I can determine, the VA did not include these med services or her monthly rent in her expenses, nor did they include out of pocket prescription costs. They said Medicare Pt D will be considered next year. Do I complete another form to have them include these other expenses? Are they legitimate expenses?Any advice is truly appreciated!
