I sent in mom's application back in March, and according to the E Benefits site, it's in the pending decision with dates that keep changing (first it was a decision was going to be made in October, now it's end of November beginning of December). The question I have is, I didn't send in a canceled check as I've read is a requirement on here, nor did I send in a bank statement. These two items they haven't asked for. Do you think Mom's application will ultimately be denied as a result of not including these? Is there a way to rectify that before the approval process, i.e., sending them now? In addition, prior to applying, my mother was only receiving her social security. Now that dad has passed, she now received his. She went from receiving $500 a month to now $1400 and that is her only income. Is that something that I should notify them of as well considering I previously submitted mom's ss award letter? Lastly, I read that my mom should be giving me check as opposed to having me withdrawal money from her account. I never submitted copies of checks or anything indicating how much mom pays us. Ugh. Looks like I might have really screwed things up. Advice on that I should do now? They did send the original application back as I needed to put zeros on some of the income sections where there was no income, but other than that, they haven't asked for anything. I filed before I found this wonderful forum! Thank you thank you thank you for creating this wonderful forum!
