The Department of Veteran Affairs offers financial assistance to war-era veterans and their surviving spouses called Aid and Attendance.
Veteran’s Aid and Attendance Program is a Federal benefit for wartime Veterans and their spouses. Veterans and their spouses may be entitled to receive tax-free financial assistance to help offset the cost of Assisted Living. You’ll find more information on the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Website.
Veterans with honorable military service of at-least 90days, with one day during a period of war should apply. In addition to meeting service requirements, the Veteran and/or spouse must meet medical and financial criteria.
The 2022 reimbursement rates for the A&A Pension Program for those within an Assisted Living or Specialized Memory Care Community can provide up to $2050 per month to a veteran, $1318 per month to a surviving spouse, and $2,431 per month to a Veteran and spouse.
“Opening New Doors” can put you in direct contact with a Veteran’s Service Officer in your region who can help you apply for this benefit.
