Aid and Attendance Benefit
What is the Aid and Attendance Benefit?
The Veterans Benefit Administration, a branch of the VA, offers tax-free, monthly monetary payments to certain wartime veterans with financial need, and their survivors. The Pension is a benefit for veterans who do not have a service-connected disability resulting from their military service.
Aid and Attendance is an additional monetary amount that can be added to the VA’s Pension. The enhanced Aid and Attendance amount is available for those who need the “aid and attendance” of another person for their routine daily living activities on a permanent basis.
A simple way to determine if you are eligible, is to start with the three main qualifications or “must-haves” for the VA pension with Aid and Attendance:
1. Military, 2. Medical and 3. Money.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has established qualification criteria for veterans and/or the surviving spouses applying for the Aid and Attendance Pension benefit.
- Veteran or Surviving Spouse of a veteran who served 90 days or more on active duty, with at least one day of service during a period of war.
- Applicant must have a medical condition not related to military service requiring assistance with activities of daily living.
- Veteran must have an honorable discharge.
- Meet income-to-medical expense ratio.
- Must meet asset requirements.
Since 2003, we have successfully helped more than 16,000 veterans and surviving spouses access quality home care and a VA Pension with Aid and Attendance to pay for that care.
