In 2012, we filed the following forms for my mother (surviving spouse): 21-2680, 21-534, and 21-4138, so that she could receive A&A benefits. At the time, her health was much better and her income was too high and she was denied. Now, she has just moved to an assisted living facility and is needing a more substantial amount of care. Her income is also less because of an annuity that is no longer paying out. Her current income is significantly less than the cost of the assisted living facility. I have a copy of the VA letters denying her eligibility in 2012, but I do not have the initial paperwork (the letters state what paperwork was filed). The initial paperwork was filed for us by someone who is no longer preparing VA paperwork. Because we filed this initially, I am unsure of the paperwork that we should file now. Should we submit an intent to file? Should we start over submitting the same paperwork? I'm not quite sure how to proceed.
