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:
- The Veteran must have served for 90 days of active duty
- The Veteran must have been honorably discharged
- The applicant must require assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs)
- The applicant must have limited financial assets
If benefits are for the surviving spouse of the veteran, the marriage must
have ended by the death of the veteran, not by divorce.
VA REGULATION CHANGES:
The VA has implemented new regulations that became effective OCTOBER 18, 2018.
Until October 18, 2018, there was no look-back for gifting assets to become
eligible for the Aid & Attendance pension. Now there is a 36- month
look-back (similar to Medi-Cal).
