Why do you need a lawyer or an agency to fill out the form for A & A ? I simply took the application to my primary care doctor and he filled it in for me.It's a very simple form but needs the signature of a physician.

Have you tried contacting your regional VA vocational rehab office? They should have the full scoop on what you need to do.

I think you just request A&A in writing and then the VA wil send you the forms you need to fill out. I think a doctor has to say you are housebound or need A&A if this is for you. I don't think it is a major legal thing. It is a claim, in fact, and you might have to go for a C&P exam. My buddy got housebound and all he did was fill out a form and have his doctor fill out his part. He was only TDIU at the time and the VA then made him 100% and awarded housebound which is a form of A&A. You basically have to prove that you are in need of A&A through medical evidence (an opinion from a doctor).

I think that the A&A From has to be filled out by a Doc.

I think that the A&A From has to be filled out by a Doc.

this is an exerpt from the M-21 Manual-

Chapter 3. Special Monthly Pension (SMP) Ratings

1. Ratings for Aid and Attendance (A&A) Allowance

Introduction This topic contains information on ratings for the Aid and Attendance (A&A) allowance, including

• the criteria for entitlement to A&A

• the requirement for a single 100-percent evaluation

• action to take when there is no 100-percent evaluation or need for A&A shown

• when to infer a claim for A&A or Housebound benefits

• presuming the need for A&A when the veteran is in nursing home care, and

• when no rating decision is required to grant A&A.

Change Date December 13, 2005

a. Criteria for Entitlement to A&A Per 38 CFR 3.352(a), to be entitled to the Aid and Attendance (A&A) allowance, the veteran must be so helpless that he/she requires the aid of another person to perform the personal functions required in everyday living.

Per 38 CFR 3.351©(1), a veteran who has bilateral vision of 5/200 or less, or contraction of the central visual field to five degrees or less, is entitled to the A&A allowance without the requirement of additional findings.

Greater disability is required for entitlement to the additional allowance for regular A&A than for entitlement to the Housebound rate or for a basic 100-percent schedular evaluation.

Note: The need for A&A does not have to be permanent before the additional Special Monthly Pension (SMP) benefits can be awarded (VAOPGCPREC 21-94).

maybe this will help,if you need the form just ask an S.O.I was given the form at a meeting with the voc rehab counselor as there was also a texas vets S.O. present.Any doctor can fill it out,there is no requirement that it be filled by a VA doctor.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
