We Specialize in Service for those who Served
The Veteran Affairs Aid & Attendance Pension program offers families and individuals an additional method of meeting or reducing vital home care costs. For qualifying veterans and their spouses, the A&A Pension provides up to $1,758 per month to a veteran, $1,130 per month to a surviving spouse or $2,085 per month to a couple.
Whether or not you or your family member qualifies for the A&A program, the VA allows households to deduct the annual cost of paying for in-home care when calculating their regular pension benefit. This annual cost is then used to calculate the benefit based on a new “countable income” and allows families earning more than the pension benefit to receive a disability income from VA. This income can be a welcomed supplement for families struggling to provide home-based elder care for their loved ones.
