VA Aid & Attendance Benefit

Helping You Obtain The Benefits You Deserve

Although there are a number of widely known benefits available to Veterans, many of them are unaware of the Aid and Attendance pension through the Veteran’s Affairs.

At Goldfarb & Luu, our experienced Tarzana elder law attorneys have a thorough understanding of Aid and Attendance. When you retain our firm, we can tailor a plan specific to your situation to ensure you or your loved one qualifies for this benefit.

Not sure if you qualify for this pension? Call us today at (800) 489-1984 to discuss your case.

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.


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).

Do not hesitate to seek the benefits you need and deserve. Contact us for your free initial consultation.
