Care for Veterans
Seniorcorp is proud to serve those who served and can now bill directly with the Veterans Administration.
The VA administers a variety of benefits and services that provide financial and other forms of assistance to service members, veterans, dependents, and survivors. One such benefit is the Aide and Attendance Benefit.
Aide and Attendance Benefit
Veterans and survivors who are eligible for a VA pension and require the aid and attendance of another person, or are housebound, may be eligible for additional monetary payment. These benefits are paid in addition to monthly pension, and they are not paid without eligibility to Pension.
The Maximum Benefit amount is $26,036.00 per year. (As of 2018)
Since Aid and Attendance and Housebound allowances increase the pension amount, people who are not eligible for a basic pension due to excessive income may be eligible for pension at these increased rates. A Veteran or surviving spouse may not receive Aid and Attendance benefits and Housebound benefits at the same time.
If you have more questions about this benefit, or are currently a recipient and would like to arrange care, please don’t hesitate to call.
