Christine A. Alsop is a VA Accredited Attorney

Veterans are entitled to important government benefits through the federal VA (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs). If you or your spouse requires long-term care, you may be entitled to additional monthly benefits — above and beyond your military pension — to cover these costs.The Aid & Attendance and Housebound program is a unique benefit administered by the VA for veterans and their surviving spouses. It is designed to help veterans and their families with the increasingly exorbitant costs of in-home or institutional care. You may be entitled to benefits if you are a veteran or surviving spouse of a veteran, and:

  • You are housebound
  • You require a caregiver to assist you with tasks that are vital for daily functioning
  • You are bedridden
  • You are a nursing home patient, or
  • You have severely limited vision

Depending on your situation, you may be able to obtain upward of $1,000 per month in additional benefits.
