This VeteranAid.org website was designed to inform veterans and their spouses of the little known pension benefit called Aid and Attendance (A&A). Only about 5% of those eligible for this benefit claim the funds available to them because they are not aware it is there. We are trying to change that.
As you may know, the A&A Pension can provide up to $1,788 per month to a veteran, $1,149 per month to a surviving spouse, or $2,120 per month to a couple. A Veteran filing with a Sick Spouse is eligible for up to $1,406 per month.
We want to spread awareness of this pension benefit so we can increase that 5% to something more along the lines of 50%, or even 100%. After browsing your website, I can tell you support our nation’s veterans and hope that you want to help VeteranAid.org in our efforts to increase the number of veterans applying for the A&A pension. It is a completely free resource that explains the application process and provides forums for people to ask questions if they need assistance with their filing process.
