VA Aid & Attendance Benefits
The VA Aid and Attendance benefit is the most well-known VA Pension, providing financial assistance to eligible wartime Veterans and/or their surviving spouses who require assistance of another person to complete aspects of daily living, from bathing and dressing to eating and medication management.
In addition to certain financial requirements, there are a few conditions a person must meet to qualify to receive the benefit:
- Period of military service
- Discharge status
- Disability status
Questions to determine disability status include things like whether the veteran or surviving spouse need assistance from another person to perform daily activities and if the individual is bedridden or has limited eyesight (5/200 visual acuity or less in both eyes).
