Any wartime veteran with at least 90 days of active duty service, with one of those days during a period of war, is eligible to apply for the Aid and Attendance Pension. Provided that the marriage ended due to the death of the veteran, a surviving spouse of a wartime veteran would also be considered eligible to apply. Please note that the individual applying must qualify both medically and financially. For more information about what those qualifications are, contact the Patriot Angels team.
To qualify for pension benefits, the claimant’s countable income must not exceed annual pension limits that are set by statute. VA benefits eligibility limits may vary based on whether claimants are veterans or survivors and their family composition, as well as whether claimants need Aid and Attendance or are considered housebound.

We are here to help veterans and their spouses get the benefits you have earned, not sell products.
