Am I on the right website? +

This website is for veterans and their widows interested in the veterans' program known as VA Pension, sometimes known as "Aid and Attendance." This program, which is administered by the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs, pays cash to veterans and their widows to help pay for long- term health care so that they can continue to live at home, stay out of the nursing home for life, and still get exactly the care they need. This program is not dependent on the veteran having been injured during military service. In fact, the widow of a veteran can receive this benefit even though the veteran never claim this benefit during his life. Thus, the program is known has a non-service-connected VA benefit. So, the program is distinct from the service-connected benefit known as Disability Compensation, which is dependent upon the veteran having been injured or become ill during their active duty service.

I'm already receiving another VA benefit. How do I know whether I am a candidate for VA Pension benefits (Aid and Attendance)? +

First, you should understand that a veteran or widow may receive either the VA Pension or an alternative such as Disability Compensation (veterans) or The Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (widows), BUT NOT BOTH AT THE SAME TIME. A beneficiary will always be paid the larger of the two programs whenever the beneficiary is eligible for both. We do not handle Disability Compensation applications. We do handle Dependency and Indemnity Compensation applications.

If you are already receiving either Disability Compensation or Dependency and Indemnity Compensation, you can determine whether VA Pension benefits could pay you more than you are currently receiving by comparing what you received today with what the maximum available Pension benefit would be. Visit the page 2019 Maximum Pension Benefits.
