U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Aid and Attendance Program

Printer-friendly version

This program is available through the Department of Veteran Affairs. A pension and compensation income benefit is payable to any qualified veteran. Deductions from the maximum pensionable amount are allowed to be made for unreimbursed medical expenses. This allows veterans with household incomes larger than the maximum pensionable amount to qualify for a monthly benefit.
