Aid & Attendance Benefits

Aid and Attendance is a non-service connected benefit, which means the injury or disability does not have to be service related. The benefit may be available to individuals over the age of 65 or under 65 years old with a qualifying disability. The disability requirements include needing aid to perform daily personal functions, being bedridden, blind, or in a nursing home for a physical or mental incapacity.

Qualifying for Assistance

In order to qualify for Aid and Attendance benefits, the veteran must meet certain requirements based on service, need, and disability qualifications. This is a need-based benefit, so there are income and asset limits to qualify for the benefit.

Applicants may qualify for benefits if they are:

  • Eligible for the VA basic pension
  • Discharged under conditions that were not dishonorable
  • Served at least 90 days in active duty and at least one day during a wartime period
  • Meet disability requirements
  • Meet requirements for income and asset limits

The process and requirements can seem confusing and overwhelming. Our Veteran Aid and Assistance lawyer in St. Petersburg has extensive knowledge of the Veteran’s Affairs system and requirements for benefits. We focus on helping individuals with disabilities and seniors with VA Aid and Attendance and other benefits.

We encourage you to contact our law firm by telephone at (727) 280-6837 to learn how we can help with your unique challenges.
