The Veterans Aid & Attendance Pensions Benefit
Not many people are aware of the Veterans Aid & Attendance Pensions Benefit which could help people who have no idea that the federal government guarantees veterans and their spouses some long-term care assistance.
Only 5 percent of these assistance funds are even applied for, because people simply do not know about the program. And for that reason, we want to spread the word to those Americans who could really use this well-earned long-term care benefit.
The Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension Benefit, or “A&A benefit,” provides up to $1,794 per month to a veteran, $1,153 to a surviving spouse or $2,127 to a couple. The money, which is tax-free, can be used for in-home care, board and care, an assisted living community or a private-pay nursing home.
