What is the Veteran Aid & Attendance Benefit?
The Veteran Aid & Attendance Benefit pension provides benefits that can help veterans, their spouses or widows, to pay for long-term care at a senior living community which provides assistance with the Activities of Daily Living (“ADLs”). Applying for the benefit can get complicated. Income and asset limits do apply. Firms that specialize in navigating the requirements are available to help you with the application. From experience, we highly recommend you use a knowledgeable VA Accredited professional to help you. Your Community Expert can connect you to a knowledgeable professional that can help you determine your eligibility and assist you with your application if eligible.
