Veterans who are at least 65 years of age and have low income may be eligible to receive a basic pension.
In additional to the basic pension, Veterans who served on active duty for at least 90 days, one of which was during a period of conflict, and received a discharge other than dishonorable may be eligible for an improved pension to help defray medical costs, such as assisted living or nursing home costs. The improved pension may be classified as either Homebound or Aid and Attendance (A&A).
Homebound benefits provide supplemental income when one is substantially confined to one’s home.
Aid and Attendance benefits provide supplemental income when one needs assistance with several activities of daily living and the person resides in his or her home, or a facility.
