However, unfortunately, like Medicaid, the process can be an exhaustive and complicated experience without a guide.
Most Veterans and their spouses have never heard of Non-Service Connected Pension (or Death Pension for a surviving spouse) with Aid & Attendance and so these benefits are underutilized.
This benefit is a cash benefit that is paid out monthly for the rest of the veteran's or surviving spouse's life to help them pay for the medical care they need. To qualify for this benefit, there is an income/asset threshold that must be met.
It is crucial that a VA Accredited attorney or representative be consulted when looking to apply for this benefit.
