VETERAN'S BENEFITS

VETERAN'S AID AND ATTENDANCE PROGRAM

If you’re a veteran or the spouse of a veteran, you may qualify for financial assistance under the The VA Aid and Attendance Pension (also known as the A&A Program). As of 2020, this pension provides up to $3,032 a month for veterans and surviving spouses who need help with daily care needs like bathing, dressing, removing prosthetics, transportation and medication management.
