Veteran lives with daughter, can she charge rent?

Daughter can charge rent for a veteran. However, rent cannot be declared as UME. Although, declare it on form 21-8049.

Additionally, a personal needs contract needs to be signed, if daughter is providing services for a fee, to veteran. Also, include the sitter affidavit, many adjudicatorssre requesting this, too. However, the daughter may have a personal tax liability due to increased income.

The doctor's form 21-2680 should include the need for "protective environment", as well as any other services the daughter is providing; e.g. assistance with bathing, dressing, medication management, meal preparation, laundry, housekeeping, etc.  The sitter affidavit and personal needs contract must state these services. 

If compentancy is an issue, send form 21-4142 in case the VA requires the medical records.
