Pension Benefit Available for Wartime Veterans

If you or your loved one is a wartime veteran, there is a little known pension benefit that may be available.  This benefit was earned by wartime veterans under the following circumstances:

  • You served for 90 days or more in active duty service;
  • You were discharged for service under other than dishonorable conditions;
  • You meet certain income and net worth guidelines; and
  • You are 65 years or older or have a permanent and total non-service-connected disability, or in a nursing home, or receiving Social Security Disability Benefits.

The pension benefit is not only a monetary benefit, it also provides an additional Aid and Attendance benefit, if necessary.  This could include coverage for in-home nursing care and care facilities.  For additional information you can watch this video from the VA.
