Aid and Attendance Allowances are paid to eligible veterans, their spouses and surviving spouses and parents.
In 2006, the VA worked to publicize this under-used benefit for qualifying veterans (or their survivors) who need in-home care or live in nursing-home or assisted-living facilities.
Large medical expenses may be reimbursed, in part, by the benefit which is paid to “claimants who are incapable of self support and in need of regular personal assistance.” Veterans with mental injuries or illnesses that require assistance to protect them from hazards in their daily environment also qualify for the allowance.
The Aid & Attendance Allowance is paid to veterans who served during wartime and eligibility requirements differ according to when you served.
