Using Veterans Benefits to Pay for Personal Care
See what we offer for veterans
If you are a wartime veteran or a surviving spouse of a wartime veteran, the Aid & Attendance pension benefit, through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, may help pay for assisted living.
Veterans Aid & Attendance
The Department of Veterans Affairs provides the Aid and Attendance Pension to eligible wartime veterans and their surviving spouses. To qualify, you must have been honorably discharged and have served at least 90 days of active military service, one day of which was during a war time period. This benefit can offset a significant portion of long term care expenses. Depending on your situation, the benefit ranges for qualifying veterans and dependent spouses are from $1,130 to $2,085 per month, tax free.
