Helping You Obtain the Benefits You Deserve
Although there are several widely known benefits available to Veterans, many of them are unaware of the Aid and Attendance pension through the Veteran’s Affairs. This benefit helps people pay for long-term care costs in assisted living communities and at home with caregivers.
At Goldfarb & Luu, we can tailor a plan specific to your situation to ensure you or your loved one qualifies for this benefit.
Who is Eligible For VA Aid & Attendance Benefit
Formerly known as the Special Monthly Pension, Aid & Attendance benefit is designed to help veterans and their survivors pay for long-term care.
To Become Eligible, the Veteran or Survivor Must Meet the Following Criteria
*Until October 2018, there was no look-back for gifting assets to become eligible for the Aid & Attendance pension. Since then, there is a 36-month look-back (similar to Medi-Cal).
