Veterans Aid and Attendance

The Veterans benefit called Aid and Attendance is an improved pension benefit for a veteran, a widowed spouse of a veteran, or a dependent of a veteran. The veteran must have served in a time of war and been considered active duty for a period of 90 days with at least 1 day during a time of war in these specific war time dates: (NOTE: This does NOT mean the veteran had to have served overseas.)

  • World War II  12/07/1941-12/31/1946
  • Korean Conflict  06/27/1950-01/31/1955
  • Vietnam War  08/05/1964-05/07/1975
  • (02/28/1961 if served in country of Vietnam)

The veteran’s discharge must be anything other than dishonorable. The claimant of the benefit must also need regular assistance with 1 of the activities of daily living. There are also income and asset requirements that the claimant must meet but that is why our firm goes through a plan to make sure this does not stop you from qualifying.
