Effective 12-01-2011, the VA has increased the monthly maximum, “Non-Service Disability Pension” benefit, often referred to as “Aid and Attendance” to the following:
These benefits are tax-free to eligible veterans and may help families defray 40-80% of their monthly long-term care expenses! Please note that the VA must see proof that the veteran or surviving spouse is paying out-of-pocket for their care, before their claim will be considered. In other words, the VA requires objective evidence of long-term care expenses. We provide these “Care Expense Statement” forms in all of our claims application attachments.
