Aid and Attendance benefits to Increase in 2012

Posted by Andrew Byers | Dec 06, 2011 | 0 Comments

There is good news for older veterans and their surviving spouses who rely upon Aid and Attendance to pay for their home care, assisted living, and nursing home costs.  The amounts veterans and their surviving spouses receive in Aid and Attendance will increase in January 2012.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has indicated that single veterans receiving Aid and Attendance will receive $1,703.00 per month.  Married veterans receiving Aid and Attendance will receive $2,019.00 per month.  Surviving spouses of veterans receiving Aid and Attendance will receive $1,094.00 per month.

These are the first increases in the VA's Aid and Attendance program since 2008.
