VA Aid and Attendance Resources
Am I Eligible for Veterans Aid & Attendance?
To determine if you are eligible for VA Aid, you can answer the following questions:
- Are you a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran who served at least 90 days on active duty, at least one day during wartime with an honorable discharge? (If you are a Persian Gulf War veteran, you must have 2 years of active duty or the full period of which you were called for active duty.)
- Do you have a non-service connected medical condition which causes you to need assistance with activities of daily living?
- Do you have limited income and assets? (Your home and car are exempt.)
- Did you serve during one of the following VA defined war periods?
- World War II: December 7, 1941-December 31, 1946
- Korean Conflict: June 27, 1950-January 31, 1955
- Vietnam Era: August 5, 1964-May 7, 1975 (Veterans who served February 28, 1961-August 5, 1964 must have served “in country” (Vietnam))
- Persian Gulf War: August 2, 1990- the date is to be prescribed by Presidential proclamation or law. You must have served active duty for two years or the full period of which the veteran was called for active duty.
About the VA Pension
In 1952 Congress passed Title 38 of the United States Code. This created what we now call the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) which authorized benefits for veterans. The Non-Service Connected Pension with “Aid & Assistance” is one of these benefits (Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension benefit).
The pension has been around for 60 years. However, very few people are aware of it or understand how it works. HomeSpark has experience successfully helping veteran families apply for and receive the pension.
