I am filling out the form and have a couple of questions that weren't covered in the Step by Step guide. Where do I find my dad's gross social security amount? All I have is a bank statement showing how much is deposited each month and I know that is the net amount with medicare taken out. I have requested a copy of the benefit letter from social security but didn't know if it would be on there. Also, what goes on the Authorization and Consent to Release Info to the Dept of VA? I didn't see any instructions for that. Does his doctor's info go in there? My father is veteran and claimant, right? Also, on Sec V 12b, interest bearing accounts. My dad has a cd that will mature in March. Do I put how much interest he will make on it? Right now it's not paying anything. Thank you. This is so confusing!
