Claim Your Special Aid & Attendance Pension You Have Earned It, Hence You Deserve It

What is the Veterans Aids and Attendance Benefit?

The Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension is a federal assistance program offering a monthly payment from the Department of Veterans Affairs designed to provide care for veterans or surviving spouses who are disabled or might have trouble living independently. These do not have to be service-related injuries or disabilities.

The benefit is paid as an income to the veteran or surviving spouse, not the care provider, and the funds can be used for anything, although most need the money to pay for needed care and medical expenses.

The Aid and Attendance (A&A) Pension provides benefits for veterans and surviving spouses who require the regular attendance of another person to assist in any of the following ways: eating, bathing, dressing and undressing, mobility, transportation or personal hygiene. It also includes individuals who are blind, patients in nursing homes or assisted living facilities.

To qualify for A&A, your physician must establish that you require daily assistance by others to dress, undress, bath, cook, eat, care of prosthetics, leave home, etc. You DO NOT have to require assistance with all of these. There simply needs to be adequate medical evidence that you cannot function completely on your own.
