What is the VA Aid and Attendance Pension?


  • The VA Aid and Attendance pension was established to assist qualified veterans and their surviving spouses, to receive financial benefits outside of the traditional VA residential system.
  • Aid and Attendance was established in 1952 under section 38  USC and provides a direct monthly pension benefit to purchase long-term care.
  • Aid and Attendance is a mandatory pension and is not subject to partisan spending or discretionary federal budget cuts.  In 2005, this program was funded by Congress at 3.3 billion.
  • The major obstacle to obtaining Aid and Attendance is the long and complicated application process.  Premier Senior Home Care can direct you to a VA approved veterans organization that will guide you through the process.
