There is a hidden VA financial resource available to our veterans and their surviving spouses that can represent over $23,000 annually to help pay for care. The VA's Improved Pension is a 3-tier Pension Benefit that includes Basic, Housebound, and Aid and Attendance.
This little known VA Pension has been an entitlement for 58 years sitting idle. The veteran does not have to been injured during his service as this is a Pension and not disability. Currently there are over 2 million widows alone missing out simply because they don't know about it.
As the daughter of a WWII veteran I discovered the pension at the passing of my dad. I applied on behalf of my mom as his widow, and she was awarded the Pension. Had we known during the 9 years they were both in assisted care they would have received over $160,000 to offset the costs of their care.
I launched veteranaid.org 4 years ago with the hope of making a difference for another son or daughter while honoring the sacrifice of service.
The site is the most respected resource on the subject of Aid and Attendance. I hope this information will make a difference for someone you love.
