What is the Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension?
The Veterans Benefits Administration, a branch of the VA, provides monthly payments to certain wartime veterans with financial need, and their survivors. This pension is available if you (the veteran) or a surviving spouse of a veteran, meet certain criteria.
The Aid and Attendance amount is available for those who need the “aid and attendance” of another person for their routine daily living activities on a long-term basis.
Are you ready for an Amelia Home Care Certified Technologist to install and train your family to be connected and safe. With The Amelia Home Care Program, Seniors can live independently longer, safe from falls and other common concerns. There’s an emergency button to request help at anytime, and also activity sensors that will detect hazards and call for help when it’s need.
How Does a Veteran Qualify for Aid and Attendance?
A simple way to determine if you are eligible is to start with the three main qualifications or “must-haves” for the VA Pension with Aid and Attendance:
1) Military: Are you a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran who served at least 90 days on active duty, at least one day during wartime, with an honorable or general discharge? (Persian Gulf War veterans must have two years of active duty or the full period for which they were called for active duty.)
2) Medical: Do you have a non-service-connected medical condition causing you to need assistance with activities of daily living?
3) Money: Do you have a net worth of, or less than, $130,773 (limit established by Congress 12.1.2020)? A primary residence and auto are not counted as part of net worth. Ongoing non-reimbursable medical and long-term care expenses may reduce your countable income.
Did you serve during one of the VA Defined War Periods?
- World War II: December 7, 1941-December 31, 1946
- Korean Conflict: June 27, 1950-January 31, 1955
- Vietnam Era: August 5, 1964-May 7, 1975 Veterans who served February 28, 1961-August 5, 1964, must have served “in country” (Vietnam).

Help with Activities of Daily Living
Activities of daily living (ADLs) are routine self-care activities that people tend to every day without needing assistance. There are six basic ADLs: eating, bathing, dressing, continence (using the toilet), mobility (transferring, walking), and grooming. Home care agencies provide aides who can assist those who need help with activities of daily living. Aid and Attendance helps wartime veterans and spouses pay for help with activities of daily living.
More About This Veterans Benefit
In 1952 Congress passed Title 38 of the United States Code authorizing certain benefits for veterans. One of these benefits is the Non Service-Connected Pension, with “Aid and Attendance.” It is also known as simply “Aid and Attendance” or “Veterans Aid and Attendance benefit” or “Aid and Attendance Pension” or “Improved Pension with Aid and Attendance.”
In March 1989, during President George H. W. Bush’s presidency, the Veterans Administration (VA) was elevated to a cabinet-level executive department. The Veterans Administration was then renamed the Department of Veterans Affairs, and continued to be known as VA. Today the VA is comprised of three basic branches: the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), the Veterans Benefits Administration and the National Cemetery Administration (NCA).
