What Are Aid and Attendance Benefits?
Aid and Attendance is a benefit paid by Veterans Affairs (VA) to certain eligible veterans, veteran spouses or surviving spouses. It is paid in addition to a veteran’s basic pension benefits. Aid and Attendance may not be paid without eligibility to a VA basic pension.
Aid and Attendance is for financial help for in–home care, to pay for an assisted living facility, or a pay for nursing home care. The disability does not have to be a result of service.
Aid and Attendance benefits are paid to those applicants who:
- Are eligible for a VA pension
- Meet service requirements
- Meet certain disability requirements
- Meet income and asset limitations
