What Are Aid And Attendance Benefits?
Aid and Attendance is a benefit paid by the VA to Veterans or surviving spouses in addition to a Veteran’s basic pension. Without being initially eligible for a basic VA pension, you’re unable to receive Aid and Attendance benefits. Medical expenses counted in qualifying for assistance include:
- In-home care services
- Assisted living facilities
- Nursing home accommodations
It’s also important to note that Aid and Attendance benefits aren’t contingent on the disability resulting from your service (also referred to as a non-service connected disability benefit).
How Do I Know If I Qualify?
If you require assistance with daily living activities, you might be eligible to receive Aid and Attendance Benefits. At AVCC, it’s our job to make the case on your behalf to the VA, if you need help with at least two of your Activities of Daily Living (ADL),you could be eligible. These ADL’s include:
- Bathing and Hygiene
- Getting Dressed
- Toileting and Incontinence
Note that these 6 activities don’t include things like housekeeping, cooking, and other household chores that you may still struggle with completing. If you find that you’re unable to perform at least 2 of these ADL activities, AVCC can jumpstart your application process by scheduling a screening. With extensive experience to draw from, our staff knows the ins-and-outs of VA requirements. We will find specific behaviors and cases to emphasize, making sure that you’re in the best possible position to receive the Aid and Attendance benefits you need.
