The Veterans Administration offers the Aid and Attendance program as part of an “Improved Pension” Benefit for our Nation’s Veterans. Our team continually informs our heroes about this frequently overlooked benefit. This Improved Pension provides assistance to wartime Veterans and surviving spouses who require the regular attendance of another person to assist in bathing, medication management, dressing, and undressing, eating, and other ADL (activities of daily life). It can also include Veterans who are blind or who are patients in a personal care home or nursing home. This important benefit is unknown by many families with Veterans or surviving spouses who need additional support to help care for ailing parents or loved ones.
This is a “Pension Benefit” and IS NOT dependent upon service-related injuries for compensation. A qualifying Veteran who is single is eligible for up to $1,645 per month, while a surviving spouse is eligible for up to $1,150 per month. A Veteran who is married is eligible for up to $1,950 per month.*
