    Hi I haven't been on in a long time. Need more help My Mama gets aid and attendance but I need to apply for an increase, She is in a assisted living facility and is no longer getting special assistance from the state due to the increase in benefits this year. She will be changed to private pay and cannot pay the increase. What forms do I need to use and what do I need for the facility to provide. Thanks in advance.

    VA form 21-4138 Statement in Support of Claim and it would not hurt to include a Statement of Occupancy from the facility stating that her rate has increased if that is the case. If it's only losing the state contribution, then just do the 21-4138.

    How should I fill it out. List the total cost of the facility or list what her part will be now after her SS is applied?

    You should just be informing them of the increase out of pocket for her.
