Are your clients or prospects wartime veterans or surviving spouses? Do they require assistance with at least two Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)? Many veterans and their families are not aware of VA benefits that help pay for home care. They may be eligible to receive a pension from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) known as the Aid and Attendance Benefit.
To qualify, the veteran needs to have served at least 90 days of active duty, with one day during a wartime period, no combat required. A veteran who meets all criteria can be eligible for VA benefits of up to $2,050 per month in 2022 and a surviving spouse as much as $1,317. This income is tax-free and paid directly to the applicant, no waiting for reimbursement from the VA or other third-party companies.
As with any government program, the paperwork is lengthy and even minor mistakes on the application can cause delays or even denial of benefits. It is important that families utilize a reliable resource to learn if they meet the VA’s eligibility criteria and complete the application correctly, that’s where HCAOA Associate Member AidandAttendance.com comes in!
