    Hello! My father is collecting the A&A benefit. Unfortunately, he has metastatic colon cancer and is on home hospice. Will my mother be able to continue to receive the benefit? And if so, is there a specific application she will need to complete? Thank you very much.

    Mom has to re-apply. There is a new VA Form 21P-534 EZ that reflects the VA's new rule changes. Depending on her financial situation, she may also need another new form: VA Form 21P-0969.

    Thank you very much. I just read that there is also a death pension that she is entitled to. Must I apply for this separately for her? Is there another form required?
