Monthly cash benefit for Veterans and surviving spouses for care in assisted living, at home care, or nursing home.
The VA Improved Pension, commonly known as Aid and Attendance, was established to provide monthly tax free financial assistance to Veterans and their spouses, allowing them to live their lives in dignity and afford basic necessities. This benefit is NOT dependent upon service related injuries. It helps cover the cost of qualified un-reimbursed medical expenses, including in-home care and assisted living facility care.

There are hard and soft requirements to receive the Veteran Pension Benefits (VA Improved Pension with aid and attendance). The hard requirements are:
- The Veteran must have served on active duty for at least 90 days,
- One of the 90 days must be during a period of war time, and
- The Veteran must also have received a better than dishonorable discharge.
For a widow(er) to receive benefits, he or she must meet the Veteran’s qualifications as well as having been married to Veteran at the time of the Veteran’s death and have not remarried.
The soft requirements considered are:
- The income of the person applying
- The assets of the person applying
Unfortunately, these requirements are often misunderstood, even by the VA. This misunderstanding leads to Veterans and widows being told erroneously that they do not qualify for the benefits.
