Veterans Pension

What is the veterans pension

The Veterans Pension program provides monthly tax free payments to wartime veterans, and their surviving spouses when certain service requirements, age, and disability requirements are met. It’s unfortunate that this program came to be known as Aid and Attendance, because this infers that one must need a high level of care in order to be eligible. This is far from the truth, in fact any veteran over the age of 65 is clinically eligible to receive benefits. Aid and Attendance is simply a medical rating that can potentially increase the monthly pension benefit. 

In 2024 the typical payments for Veterans Pension and Survivors Pension without Aid and Attendance or Housebound  ranger from $925 – $1806 depending on marital status and number of dependents.
