We receive phone calls every day from Veterans, Surviving Spouses, and families caring for a loved one that tell us “I’ve never heard of this pension are you sure it exists?” Or “I’m not eligible because I was not injured in the War.”
YES this pension does exist and Veterans Care Alliance is on a mission to make sure every Veteran and Surviving Spouse knows about it. This little known and often misunderstood benefit is a “tax free” pension that may help offset the cost of Assisted Living and In-Home Care. It is paid directly to the Veteran or Widow.
Veterans who are granted special monthly pension are eligible for free prescriptions through the VA. This additional benefit alone can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars annually.
With the Aid & Attendance pension Veterans and Surviving Spouses are able to purchase the care they need, select the services they require, and the provider that meets those needs.
