Veterans Aid and Attendance Special Pension benefit.

Aid and Attendance Special Pension.

A DVA benefit not many people know about.   The Aid and Attendance Special Pension benefit was designed for those who need the Aid and Attendance of another person in performing their daily living activities, are severely visually impaired; or are permanently housebound.

This is a tax free benefit for senior veterans and their spouses.   My understanding of this means tested benefit is that all wartime veterans over 65 years old qualify as long as the medical necessity is present.  

Veterans Angels Inc. is a non-profit corporation devoted to assisting senior veterans and spouses obtain this little known benefit.   Here is a link to the web site to get additional information and begin the claims process.   http://vetangels.org/do-i-qualify.html    

I hope this information helps someone in a time of need.

Thanks for your comment James.  I was in the Air Force, Security Service and in DaNang Viet Nam in 1966.  Happened to see an article in the newspaper recently about the benefit and thought I should share it with others.

Ray, Thanks for this interesting post.

Many Vets don't know what benefits are available to them. The US Government should reach out to our heros as much as they reach out to undeserving "Illegals" advising them of benefits.
