Hello, First, I want to thank you so much for the VeteranAid website. It has been of immense help to me in understanding the A&A application process. I also have a couple of questions to ask. Here is some background info. My father was a WWII veteran. He passed away some years ago. My mother is now 90 and in need of assisted living. We found a suitable facility and we will be moving her in mid April. She has about 30,000 in assets and a retirement of about 1700 a month. She also owns a home worth about 100,000. We will be selling the house to help pay for her assisted living expenses. We have a good bit of work to do to get the house in shape and the market is still not that great so I expect the sale could be 3 months to a year off - possibly more. I am now in the process of getting the A&A application in order. My questions are these. 1. Should we go ahead with the A&A application now and then notify the VA when the house is sold or should we wait until after the house is sold and her assets have been depleted below the appx 80,000 level? 2. If we apply now and then notify the VA after the house is sold, my understanding is that the VA may reduce or suspend the pension. If that is the case, how do we get the pension re-instated after her assets fall below the 80,000 level? Is that done using the form 21-4138 or will we need to submit a whole new application? Again, thank you for providing such a great resource!
