The Aid and Attendance Program
An important benefit paid by Veterans Affairs (VA) to veterans, veteran spouses or surviving spouses is the Aid and Attendance program. It is paid in addition to a veteran’s basic pension.
The benefit may not be paid without eligibility to a VA basic pension. Aid and Attendance is for applicants who need financial help for in–home care, to pay for an assisted living facility or a nursing home. It is a non–service connected disability benefit, meaning the disability does not have to be a result of service. You cannot receive non–service and service–connected compensation at the same time.
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
