I spoke to VA today and they told me that my retired Navy Captain father is not entitled to A&A because he gets a Navy retirement and not a VA retirement. They went on to tell me that he can stop his Navy retirement and apply for a VA retirement, but probably wouldn't qualify as his income would be too much. He was commissioned in June 1941, active throughout WWII and continued active/reserve until his retirement in 1976. He is 91. Now, he's beginning dementia and needs home care for personal needs and meals, which I cannot give as I live in another state and he refuses to move. His mind is clear most of the time and I really don't want to uproot him and take him away from his health providers and his familiar surroundings. Surely the information I received today is wrong. Can someone either confirm this or give me some direction?
