VA Aid and Attendance Benefits

Are you eligible for VA Aid and Attendance or Housebound benefits as a Veteran or survivor?

VA Aid and Attendance or Housebound benefits provide monthly payments added to the amount of a monthly VA pension for qualified Veterans and survivors.

What is Aid & Attendance?

Aid & Attendance is a nonservice-related tax-free pension paid monthly for the rest of the veteran’s or his/her dependent’s life. It is a direct deposit to your account.

If the necessary care is in place, A&A can be used to offset the cost of room and board in an assisted or independent living community. It can also help offset the cost of a third-party care provider in a community or at your home. (Source)

Benefit Amounts

Payments are disbursed directly to you, and how much you receive every month will vary based on your counted income, number of dependents, assets and expenses. For 2023, the maximum annual A&A pension rates are:
  • Surviving Spouse $1,432 Monthly / $17,184 per year
  • Single Veteran $2,229 Monthly / $26,748 per year
  • Married Veteran $2,642 Monthly / $31,704 per year
  • Two Vets Married $3,536 Monthly / $42,432 per year
You must meet certain medical, financial and service requirements to qualify.(Source)
