VETERAN’S BENEFITS: AID AND ATTENDANCE
Assisting Veterans in determining what benefits they may be eligible for and achieving qualification.
The Aid & Attendance Benefit is available to many Veterans and their surviving spouses to help pay for long-term care. As an VA accredited attorney, I can assist you in determining what benefits you may be eligible for and achieving qualification. For those who qualify, this benefit can means as much as $1,000 to $2,000 tax-free cash per month (paid directly to the Veteran, surviving spouse, or their representative). This site provides you with information about whether you may qualify. By answering some simple questions, we can determine whether you may be eligible for the Aid & Attendance Benefit.
***These amounts may change each year based on cost of living adjustments.
Medical-related expenses include the cost of care in skilled nursing, assisted living, adult day centers, and at home. Medicare and other insurance premiums, as well as prescriptions not covered by insurance, should also be included as medical-related expenses. Income from Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and welfare benefits should not be included as countable income. A detailed explanation how the VA calculates income is available here. Assistance is available to help veterans determine their countable income which will enable them to receive their maximum benefit amount.
