Are you a war-time veteran or the spouse of a United States Armed Forces vet? If so, you may be eligible to receive substantial financial assistance through a VA program known as “Aid and Attendance.”
Aid and Attendance benefits pay up to $1788 per month for a single vet; $2120 per month for a vet and spouse and $1149 per month for the surviving spouse of a war-time veteran. A and A benefits can help defray the costs of caregivers in the home or can be allocated to pay for assisted living, personal care and skilled care residential facilities.
To qualify for the Aid and Attendance benefit, veterans must have at least 90 days of active military duty with at least one day of service during a time of war. To see a list of America’s Wars, as determined by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs, click here.
