Discussing my Wife & I potential "Assisted Living" with a VA reresentive I am a little confused with the 'Sliding Scale" that determines the benefit. 1st of all our (Wife & Myself) assests exceed the $80,000 limit. As it stands now, we will get no benefits from the VA. When our assests are the same as our expenses we will get the maximum benefits. Where can I get the formula for this "Sliding Scale" ?
