Veterans 'Aid and Attendance' Pension for the Golden Years

The Aid and Attendance (A&A) pension is awarded to a veteran or surviving spouse that requires assistance with their Activities of Daily Living (ADL's) such as dressing, bathing, cooking, eating etc.

HOW LONG HAS THE A&A PENSION BEEN AROUND?

The A&A pension has been around since the end of World War II, more than 60 years.

WHO CAN QUALIFY FOR THE A&A PENSION?

To qualify for the A&A pension a veteran (married or single) or surviving spouse must pass "5 Tests" they are: 

-Be age 65 years or older, or if under age 65 must have a total & permanent disability that prevents you from working.
-Service of 1 day during a war time period.
-Must have a medical need for some help. If over age 65 you DO NOT have to be disabled.
-Income qualifications. The VA allows lots of deductions. Most people don't know how to structure their income to receive the maximum benefit.
-Asset Qualifications. Your home & car are "Exempt Assets". Other assets can be structured in the "Exempt Asset" category so you can receive your full benefits. 

HOW MUCH MONTHLY CASH AM I ELIGIBLE FOR?

Surviving Spouse - $1,094 per month.........$13,128 per year!

Single Veteran - $1,703 per month.........$20,436 per year!

Married Couple - $2,019 per month.........$24,228per year!

WHAT ARE THE WAR PERIODS THAT QUALIFY ME?

WWI 1917-1921.
WWII 12/7/1941 - 12/31/1946.
Korean War 6/27/1950 - 1/31/1955.
Vietnam War 2/28/1961 to 5/7/1975 **Note: Veteran had to be physically in Vietnam between 2/28/1961 to August 4, 1964 to qualify. After August 5, 1964 through 5/7/1975 the veteran could have been stationed elsewhere as long as they were active duty during those years.

Jairo,

Great information not only to those that might qualify but more importantly, the children of these veterans or spouses of veterans that need the caregiving of a loving child.  Many people don't know about this nor put forth the effort to learn about it.  You post certainly helps.  Thanks!

Good morning Jairo -

I truly appreciate you getting the word out there for the Veterans 'Aid and Attendance' Pension for the Golden Years.  I agree we should pay it back to our Vets and their families in any way we can.  Hope you make it a great day in all you do!
