I am applying for the Aid and Attendance for my mom.. well, I am filling in the paperwork for her. Here is what I have so far: My dad's discharge papers (DD-14) Copy of their Marriage Certificate Copy of my dad's Death Certificate Copy of my mom's SS award letter Net worth info - What do I need here? She doesn't own a car or home or anything really. Lives in small apartment. Proof of all income - (Pension letter) and SS Letter Proof of Insurance Premiums (this is included on the Pension letter - it shows what she pays for 3rd party Health care Physician Statement -Form 21-2680 and Nursing Home Status Statement VA Form 21-534EZ My questions are this: 1) Do I need to fill out the following sections on form 21-534EZ? Section IV: Dependent Children (Complete Only If Claiming Benefits For A Child of the Veteran) - I am not claiming any benefit, but still wasn't sure if I needed to put anything here. Section VI: DIC (Complete Only If Claiming Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC)) - I am not sure what this means... do I need to fill this out? If so, what box(s) need to be checked Section VII: Net Worth (Complete Only If Claiming Death Pension or Parents DIC) - Again, what if anything do I fill out here? She only has her bank account and nothing else. No 401k, no IRA, no stocks, etc. Doesn't own any property. Section VIII: Gross Monthly Income (Complete Only If Claiming Death Pension or Parents DIC) - I have listed Social Security and for OTHER I put in her pension amount. Is this correct? Section IX: Expected Income (Complete Only If Claiming Death Pension or Parents DIC) - There is no other expected income except what is from SS and Pension. No Wages or Salary, so I put in 0. Is this correct? Section X: Medical, Last Illness, Burial, or other Expense (Complete Only If Claiming Death Pension or Parents DIC) - Is this were we list prescription costs and cost paid to care providers? I really appreciate any assistance. My mom is in very bad health with COPD and many other conditions so I am trying my best to fill this out and get it processed as quickly as possible. We can't afford to pay someone to fill out the forms. I called around and places want $1000 or more. So I found this site and was hoping that I would get some help here. Thank you.
