Few obligations are more important than caring for the people who served the United States of America while in uniform. If you are a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran, then you might qualify for a pension from the Department of Veterans Affairs. A pension can help your family keep you safe and healthy, and an ideal candidate for a pension is someone who is in an assisted living facility or who receives advanced care at home.
Qualifying can be complicated and is based on criteria that include wartime service, character of discharge, health, income, and assets. Pension amounts vary based on a person's condition, but with Aid & Attendance, which is the highest level of the pension, a single veteran can receive up to $26,752 tax-free per year.
