Are you or a loved one eligible for Aid and Attendance benefits? Please take a moment to review the following questions.
Did the veteran serve on active duty for at least 90 days, one day of which was served during wartime?
(Click here to view applicable wartime periods. Those serving as Merchant Marines or in the Coast Guard during WWII may also qualify.)
Did the veteran leave the service with a discharge other than dishonorable?
Does the claimant require the regular assistance of another person with some activities inherent in daily life (examples include tasks such as bathing, dressing, preparing meals, or administering medication)? Does the claimant require a protective environment due to dementia or other debilitating mental illnesses? Can a physician verify these requirements?
Is the claimant spending money each month on long-term care, such as assisted living, a nursing home stay, prescription drugs, insurance premiums, or home health care? Does the claimant have a child who is providing care?
Are you concerned that the costs of these long-term care expenses may drain your loved one’s financial resources?
