Many families are unaware of an important benefit available through the Department of Veterans Affairs to which their loved ones may be entitled. It is a pension program often referred to as Aid and Attendance, and it can help defray the costs of care for qualified veterans and their surviving spouses.  

Some key things to know about the Aid and Attendance benefit:

Aid and Attendance is a pension benefit and is not dependent upon service-related injuries.

Wartime veterans and their surviving spouses may be eligible.

Certain medical and financial requirements must be met.

Veterans Aid and Attendance benefits can help pay for care in the home, nursing home or assisted living facility.
