WHAT IS THE AID & ATTENDANCE SPECIAL PENSION?

There is a little known, tax free, VA pension benefit (originally established by Congress in 1952) available to veterans with non-service connected disabilities and their surviving spouses. The Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension provides qualified veterans and surviving spouses who have limited financial resources, with the means to pay for assistance received at home or in some cases, nursing homes or assisted-living facilities.

Qualifying Criteria for Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension:

The veteran must have been on active duty for at least 90 days, one day of which must have been during a period of war as determined by the federal government.
   
The veteran must have received a discharge other than dishonorable.
   
The veteran must be permanently disabled due to NON-service connected causes and need the assistance of another person with activities of daily living, the need for which must be supported in writing by a physician.
 
A surviving spouse must have been married to the veteran at the time of his or her death.
   
To receive the maximum pension, the veteran or surviving spouse must be spending his or her available income for purchase of ongoing, unreimbursed medical expenses such as home care or assisted living services.
   
The veteran or surviving spouse is limited as to liquid assets they may possess and still qualify for the pension. There is no specific dollar amount published by the VA, but it is generally held to be some amount less than $80,000*... usually less, depending on the age of the claimant.
   
  *Based on the specific details of each veteran’s situation, as part of the consultation process, Veterans ElderCare is often able to predict with a high degree of accuracy, the value of liquid assets the claimant will be allowed to keep by the VA.

How Much is the Veteran Aid & Attendance Pension?

Surviving Spouse
$1094/month or $13,132/year
Veteran without dependent $1704/month or $20,446/year
Veteran with Dependent $2020/month or $24,238/year



Additional Benefits for Approved Veterans:
Veterans who are awarded the pension may also be eligible for prescriptions, hearing aids, one year free dental care and eye care at no cost, from the VA. (NOTE: these additional benefits are only available to veterans who’ve been awarded the pension and are not available to surviving spouses).

How Does Veterans ElderCare Help?
We provide advice and consultation for veterans and surviving spouses who may qualify and wish to apply for the pension. We also work together with home care providers and assisted living facilities all over the country and in our years of service have helped countless veterans or surviving spouses receive the benefits they need and deserve.
Typical of all Federal programs, the application process for the Aid and Attendance Pension can be confusing and tricky. Many veterans or their family members find the whole process to be so daunting that sometimes they don’t even attempt it. In many cases, applications prepared by the individual without help, are denied because they weren’t done correctly ... even when the veterans or surviving spouse was actually qualified for the pension. In our years of experience we’ve learned the ins and outs of the program and we can advise applicants as to exactly what the VA is looking for in order to award the maximum pension.

We guarantee approval for eligible veterans and surviving spouses.

You or your loved one has defended our country with honor.
