Are any additional benefits available for Veterans with more severe disabilities?

If you are found eligible for pension, you may also be entitled to Aid and Attendance or Housebound Benefits. This is for Veterans who are more seriously disabled, and these benefits are in addition to pension.

Aid and Attendance can be granted to a Veteran when he or she is eligible for pension and meets any of the following conditions:

  • The Veteran requires the aid of another to perform personal functions of living,
  • The Veteran is bedridden,
  • The Veteran resides in a nursing home due to mental or physical disability, or
  • The Veteran is blind.

Housebound benefits are also paid in addition to monthly pension. Veterans are eligible for these benefits if they qualify for pension and one of the following:

  • The Veteran suffers from 100% single permanent disability and is permanently and substantially confined to an immediate area, or
  • The Veteran has 100% single permanent disability and another disability evaluated at 60% or more.
