VA Aid and Attendance
Many Veterans and their families are unaware of a significant benefit called the VA Enhanced Pension for Aid and Attendance. This pension is not dependent upon service related to injuries. It helps cover the cost of qualified un-reimbursed medical expenses including in-home care, assisted living, and nursing home care.
The VA Enhanced Pension for Aid and Attendance is a benefit for wartime Veterans, and widows of wartime Veterans. To qualify based on one’s service, the Veteran only needs to have served ninety days or more during a time of war and received a better than dishonorable discharge. They do not have to have served in combat. The VA pension benefit can significantly improve the quality of life for Veterans and their spouses. One has to qualify medically (have a need for assistance with the activities of daily living). Also, one must qualify based on their financial situation and care costs. These matters are best discussed with a VA attorney.
