Veteran currently receives $318/month in VA pension. Nursing home is telling him he can only keep $40 and must provide them with monthly check of $278. Have read a few articles and law (38 USC 5503 (d) that seemingly says pension should be reduced to $90 and belongs to veteran and nursing home should provide an additional $40 (Virginia) for a total of $130/mo. for personal needs allowance. Can anyone provide additional clarification?
