    My parents shared a room in a not-for-profit nursing home and had begun receiving Medicaid when my Dad, who had also been receiving A&A died.

    The VA approved my 93 year old Mom's A&A application and correctly reduced the pension to $90/mo. But the Claims Examiner also said she was not owed Accrued Benefits, even though 2 timely claims had been filed a month before his death.

    It appears this may have been an oversight, but I would appreciate some clarification: Are survivors who are receiving the $90 rate excluded from Accrued Benefits?
