Description: VeteranAid.org is a free resource for veterans, their surviving spouses and their families who are looking for clear, concise information about the VA Aid and Attendance (A&A) pension benefit and how to apply for it.

 

For veterans and surviving spouses who meet VA eligibility requirements, A&A can help pay for the cost of daily senior care, whether it’s provided at home, in assisted living or in a nursing home.

 

A&A can pay up to:

 

$1,881 per month for a single veteran who needs care

$2,230 per month for a veteran and his or her spouse

$1,209 per month for a surviving spouse of a veteran

This a need-based benefit that veterans have earned through their service but some vets and their families are unaware of the A&A program. By some estimates, although as many as a quarter of today’s American seniors are potentially eligible for A&A, only 5% are enrolled.

 

The application process for this benefit involves patience and work — filling out VA forms, gathering bills and receipts and waiting for approval. But the results can make a big difference in the quality of senior care that families can afford. That’s why we believe the effort is worth it and it’s why we’re here to help.
