Veteran’s Benefits

Attorney and Author, Joanne Leifheit, and her book on the VA Aid and Attendance Pension Benefit

If you are a veteran, spouse or widow/er of a veteran facing the costs of home health care, assisted living, or nursing home care, or if you are a family member caring for a veteran, spouse or widow/er of a veteran, you may qualify for up to $18,120 per year of additional benefits to help pay for care. The benefit is commonly called the Aid and Attendance Benefit. Although it is technically a “pension”, this is not the same pension benefit that most of us think of when we hear the word “pension”.

Joanne with new bookMany veterans wrongly believe their income is too high to qualify, and that they must have been in actual combat or suffered a service-connected disability to qualify.
