Veterans Monthly Aid & Attendance Pension Rates Increase

12-2-2017 - Elderly and disabled veterans who have served during certain wartime periods may be eligible for Pension with Aid and Attendance. One need not have a service-connected disability to qualify.  These benefits can help cover the cost of at-home care, nursing home care, and assisted living. Widows and widowers of eligible veterans may also qualify. To be eligible, income must fall below a certain level, once unreimbursed medical expenses are deducted.

Effective December 1, 2017, the V. A. updated its monthly pension rates, which are shown below.. For more information on V.A. Pension with Aid and Attendance, click here.
