VETERANS PENSION BENEFITS [^ Back to top]
Understanding the Aid and Attendance Special Pension
The Veteran’s Administration offers a Special Pension with Aid and Attendance (A & A) benefit that is largely unknown. The Aid and Attendance (A&A) Special Pension is a benefit that may be available for veterans and/or surviving spouses, who are at least 65 years old, to assist with the cost of long term care. This is a “pension benefit” and is not dependent upon service-related injuries for compensation. Most Veterans who are in need of assistance qualify for this pension. Aid and Attendance can help pay for care in the home, nursing home or assisted living community.
How quickly would I receive the benefit? The average processing time by the VA averages 6-9 months. However, the VA does pay retroactively upon approval from the date of the application. The recipient is paid directly from the VA. The maximum benefit is currently $2,632 per month.

TAX DEDUCTIONS [^ Back to top]
Under the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), seniors may be eligible to deduct portions or all of assisted living costs as a medical expense, for Federal income tax purposes.
All costs related to senior care may be deductible if the resident is unable to perform (without substantial assistance) at least two activities of daily living (such as eating, bathing, dressing, etc.) or who require substantial supervision to protect the individual from himself or herself because of severe cognitive impairment.
We encourage you to fully explore this opportunity and seek the advise of your tax advisor.
