The Aid and Attendance (A&A) Pension provides benefits for veterans and surviving spouses who need regular assistance by another person to help with eating, bathing, dressing and undressing or taking care of the needs of nature. To qualify for Aid & Attendance you must establish with documentation from your doctor that you must have daily assistance by others to help you dress, undress, bathe, cook meals, eat, or take prosthetics on or off. You don’t need to require assistance with all of these to get the Aid and Attendance benefit. You simply need adequate medical documentation that you cannot function on your own.
Your eligibility must be proven by filing the proper application with the VA. This application will require a copy of your DD-214 or separation papers, Medical Evaluation from your doctor, current medical issues, net worth limitations, and net income, along with out-of-pocket Medical Expenses. Meurer Law Offices can assist you with the completion and submission of all of the forms and records needed to receive this valuable benefit. Call us today at 303.991.3544.
