  1. I am the sole caretaker for my spouse which makes it extremely difficult to leave and go to a VA facility to file my claim. When I registered for Ebenefits it says I have to have a Premium Account but I cannot just leave for the in person verification. It is imperative that I get benefits because of recent health status and also the full time care my wife will need if/when I need a treatment plan. Can somebody direct me on how to get VA Form 21-526 filled out and also to obtain my C File? I have a portion of my medical record frm my time in service in the Army from 1972-1976. Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated, I live in a fairly remote area without a local VSO or Rep. Regards
  2. My father, Veteran, and mother have had A & A of $2120/ month for their joint assisted living. Dad has Alzheimer's and will be moving over to skilled nursing on Saturday. He is on hospice with Alzheimer's. We have to apply in April for Medicaid. Mom has essential tremor and stints in legs. She can't live on her own and will remain in assisted living. They reside in Indiana. I've been told by VA over a phone that mom will not receive ANY money. Then on another forum an assisting veteran tells me to send in a form 21-4138 and mom will receive the entire benefit of $2120. No directions on this form. Or will dad only get $90 and no income for mom? She only has $600 Soc. Security. Oh, please help. I am their fiduciary and daughter.
  3. Hello Fellow veterans, It's been such a long time since I posted here. I come to you with a question. I sent in a claim for A&A for my spouse. I received a letter today that states: Your current benefit payment will continue unchanged. What We Decided Aid & Attendance for Spouse - Effective Sept. 18, 2014 ~ Entitlement to additional benefits based on the need for aid & attendance is established. ~ Entitlement to aid and attendance allowance for "My Spouse Name" is established effective Sept. 18, 2014 - the date you filed your claim. So, I'm confused, will I receive additional monetary benefits or not and is there any additional benefits for a spouse that has been approved for aid and attendance? Thank you, Cherie33
  4. From time to time I see that buddy letters are used to help develop the continuity and nexus of a claim. I also see recommendations for letters from a spouse, children or other family members. Does the VA really consider this strong probationer lay evidence? I hadn't thought about having my wife write a letter, but if it will put another nail in the claim, maybe I should. Any thoughts or past experiences? Happy Labor Day! Mark
  5. Hello, I am the spouse of a disabled veteran. He has served honorably for 30 yrs, he has been granted 100% disability with Housebound. I have a hunch he is not receiving all he is entitled to and am here to do research to see if i am right. I am trying to understand the SMC and all I keep finding are the letters, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R... S... I can't find the definitions. If someone could please direct me to where I can find those definitions I would be most appreciative.
