    He or "they" have an arrangement with the ALF for anyone they get approved for residence, and for the most part these groups are "financial" groups looking to sell anunnities. They have flooded the market with showing up at ALFs and looking for folks who need to move money around in order to qualify, while overlooking those who this pension was designed for and who are in the greatest need of it.

    If time is critical for you and you need someone who is trust worthy and not putting on "presentations", I would highly recommend you contact Patty at ElderBenefitsConsulting.com to discuss your options for assistance.

    I would also suggest talking with someone at a local Veterans Service Organization (i.e. VFW, American Legion, etc) or with your local County Veterans Service Officer. These groups are recognized by VA as organizations that can act as your/her representative and have reputations of honesty and integrity. Not to mention they know their way around the application process.
