What Is the Aid & Attendance Benefit?

The Aid & Attendance benefit was created by Veteran’s Affairs (VA) and is an additional amount awarded to veterans and their spouses if they meet specific criteria. It is designed to ensure that veterans who face medical challenges, either through wartime injury or age, are given the resources they need to enjoy a fulfilling life. Veterans and their spouses who have trouble performing specific daily tasks, including bathing, dressing, eating, or driving, may qualify for the Aid & Attendance benefit.
