Benefits for Veterans

A veteran's pension is a cash benefit paid to war-time veterans who have limited or no income. Veterans 65 and older automatically qualify to receive this benefit. Those younger than 65 must be permanently and totally disabled. Veterans who are more seriously disabled may qualify for Aid and Attendance or Household Benefits, paid in addition to their basic pension rates. The package may pay a monthly stipend of $1,788 to $2,120 to help with living expenses. A widow of a war-time veteran may also apply for the Widows Pension with Aid and Attendance benefit package, making them eligible to receive up to $1,149 a month. For more information, contact your county veterans' services officer and visit the VA website.
