I thought I had finally finished my moms application but I was going over it one more time and I think I may be missing something big. I was using the Step by Step Guide to VA Improved Pension instructions that I downloaded from this site. In section IX question 40a (where you claim expenses) there is note that says that Medicare Deduction should be listed first. I have no idea what my moms medicare deduction is. Where would I look for that? It doesn't seem to be part of the rest of the financial info I have gathered? Any tips on where I would find this? Thanks so much!
