Veteran’s Aid and Attendance Pension
The Veteran’s Aid and Attendance (A&A) Pension provides benefits for veterans of certain specific war periods and surviving spouses who require the regular attendance of another person to assist in eating, bathing, dressing and undressing or taking care of the needs of nature.
To qualify for A&A it must be established by your physician that you require daily assistance by others with some of the daily activities listed above. You do not need assistance with all of these daily activities to qualify.
Eligibility must be proven by filing the proper Veterans Application for Pension or Compensation (Form 21-526 Veteran) (Form 21-534 surviving spouse). This is a needs based benefit in terms of evaluating your income.
The A&A Pension can provide up to $1,632 per month to a veteran, $1,055 per month to a surviving spouse, or $1,949 per month to a couple. The process can be slow so it’s a good idea to start the paperwork now.
You will find lots of people and companies offering to help you obtain this benefit. Be Careful. Many of these “resources” are scams. You should never have to pay any monies up front when applying for this benefit.
