Do you help care for a Veteran, spouse of a Veteran, or know someone that does? If so, you may be unaware of this benefit to help cover the cost of home care services.
The Veterans Aid & Attendance (A&A) Pension is a little known benefit that provides financial support for low-income veterans and surviving spouses needing care services. The pension can help cover the cost of home care assistance such as bathing, dressing, and eating.
Certain requirements must be met in order to qualify including:
- Participation in Wartime service (or is Widow of Wartime Veteran)
- Age of Wartime Veteran
- Total cost of medical expenses
- Need for assistance with 2 or more activities of daily living
- Household income and asset limits
The process to gather all required paperwork and complete the application process can be quite time-consuming. However, as you can see by the monthly pension benefits, it is well worth the effort.
At Enriched Life Home Care Services, we salute our Veterans and thank them for their loyal service to our country. Our case managers are here to provide compassionate and affordable home care to Veterans that need assistance.
For more information about the Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension benefit contact the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
