I filed for the aid and attendance, widows, pension last Oct. For my mother. My dad served during WW2 and met all criteria. I met with the local DAV to be sure all paperwork was in order before sending in the packet. My mom is in poor health and blind in both eyes, home bound. We currently have a caregiver in home for her, who comes daily for 3.5 hours. The cost of care far exceeds her income, which is only soc sec. Her net worth falls way below the limit, even with the new guidelines. They were working ppl, no major savings, small home whise value was depleted by our county to under 50k. I received confirmation of receipt with her case number. The DAV told me to not include the form aloiwing me to communicate on her behalf as it could cause the VA to send someone out to check competence and hold things up. So we should be "fast track". With all this said, when I try to utilize the deers system, it says it recognizes the file but the info is not all the same and to call. I cannot call, so how can I ck status, what info may I be entering into deers wrong. Does it want my dads ss number, whose name, etc? My moms savings will be depleted soon and she will be forced into a home under medicaid. This is wrong on every count. I attached a letter of financial need with the application. What now? What?
