Veterans Benefits to Pay for Home Care
Specialized Service for those who Served
The Veteran Affairs Aid & Attendance Pension program offers families and individuals a method of meeting or reducing home care costs for veterans. For qualifying veterans and their spouses, the A & A Pension provides financial support per month to veterans, surviving spouses, and couples.
Even if your family doesn’t qualify 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”, which allows families earning more than the pension benefit to receive a disability income from the VA.
