Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefit

What is the Aid and Attendance Pension?

The Veteran can receive more than $25,000 per each year, tax-free, to help pay for the high cost of long-term care.

As a wartime married Veteran of any branch of the US military, you may be eligible for up to $25,440 of tax-free income per year. Veterans must be fully disabled or over 65 and rely on the assistance of another individual for daily living activities.
The VA Improved Pension Aid and Attendance is a program in which individuals who served in the military during World War II, the Korean Conflict, the Vietnam War, or the First Gulf War starting in 1990, are eligible for a special VA pension. The benefit extends to the Veteran's spouse and surviving spouse of a Veteran who served during wartime. The spouse did not have to be married to the Veteran at the time of service. Common law marriages are recognized for eligibility.

The pension is paid tax free to help cover home health care, an assisted living facility, and nursing home costs. A family member can also provide home health care, and the Veteran can pay that person for the care given.


If you or your spouse served our country during a period of war, check out your eligibility for this benefit. If you require assistance at home, live in a senior retirement community or assisted living facility, or if nursing home care is inevitable, you may be able to raise your standard of living or move into a facility where you can receive all the care you need.

Making the decision

The VA Pension will provide needed tax-free funds to help pay for the assistance of someone to help with daily activities such as eating, dressing, mobility, toileting, or bathing. The benefit is for all Veterans; however, if the Veteran is over the age of 65, the need for care does not have to be service-connected. Mental incapacity due to dementia or Alzheimer's disease, hip replacements, and even blindness and other diseases of old age may qualify the Veteran or spouse for this benefit. Friends, relatives, or professional staff can provide this care at home, in an assisted living facility, or in a nursing home.

What can you receive?

A married veteran can receive up to $2,120 per month; a single veteran may receive up to $1,788 per month. The benefit for care for a spouse is $1,403, while that for a surviving spouse is just over $1,149 per month. These benefits are tax free and do not affect any Social Security payments.

Who is eligible for Benefits?

Veterans who served during a period of war, their spouses, their surviving spouses, or their dependent children. Veterans must have served for at least one day during the period of war, 90 consecutive days of active duty, and honorable discharge.
Need for aid does not have to be service-related for those over the age of 65. For those under 65, assistance is available for total disability or for service-related partial disabilities.

General Guidelines

  • Veterans must have had 90 days of active service with at least one day of service during a defined period of war.

  • To receive a benefit, a surviving spouse must still have been married to the Veteran when he or she passed away.

  • A completed Physician’s Evaluation must state that you are in need of an aide or attendant on a daily basis.

  • You must have received an honorable or general discharge.
  • You may receive a benefit to pay for care at home, an assisted living facility, or a nursing home. Care can be provided by family, friends, or professionals.

If you have assets in excess of the allowable limits, you may still be able to qualify with proper planning. Call us today to learn how you can benefit from this improved pension.
