Report to the VA with an assisted living facility letter and a revised medical expense report (form 21-8416). But, if the pension amount is not affected, you may wait until the next EVR to report the change.

However, if the pension amount is improved or decreased due to the relocation of the surviving spouse, report it immediately.
