    Never mind, read up the thread. Will try to get him to pay by check.

    You need to get him to pay them with checks for any sort of caregiving. That's the only way it can be tracked and proven to the VA that he is paying for care.

    There is an Attendant Affidavit Form that can be used to report how much is paid to a caregiver. I will upload the form in my post. I have used this many times in filing for Pensions for veterans and spouses. If anyone has any questions about this form please let me know.

    That affidavit form you attached appears to be an outdated one. I got a different one from the VA but I need a blank copy (messed up the original one). I have been trying to get the form online and cannot come up with it no matter how hard I have tried.

    The VA has never given me any problems with that form. I have been using it for the past 4 years. Per the M21-1MR the VA must take a form even if it is outdated.

    Is this form used in lieu of a Caregiver's Agreement?

    That's good to know. How many days, months, years, etc. of employment is the VA looking for on that form? Is one year of pay sufficient to provide?

    Yes, yearly or monthly pay should be fine.

    J. Martinez You would fill out the block of when the caregiver was first employed but I usually list the amount paid to the caregiver either monthly or annually so it doesn't confuse the VA.

    Kaylin, since my mom's caregivers work different hours sometimes, I cannot put a per day/week/month/year amount. Can I write in "hourly" on the Attendant Affidavit form and put the amount per hour? Will that be acceptable?

    J. Martinez you could report the average monthly amount. Otherwise the VA will have some difficulty annualizing the amounts if they vary that much.

    Like Matt375 said, you can put the average amount. That might be best.
