Hi everyone. I am brand new here. My father will be 86 very soon and served in WWII. He has never applied for a pension or any benefits. Unfortunately, his health is very poor and he is housebound, requiring my mother's assistance for everything. She herself is not in great health. I want to apply for the Aid & Attendance Pension, but am confused as to whether I should be applying first for the VA Pension, or?? They have no idea about any of this and nor do I. They need my help and I am able to give it, but I ask your guidance here. I thank you for any information you can provide and for this great website!
