Massachusetts Veteran Benefit For Long-Term Care
Are You an Honorably Discharged Veteran?
Do You Qualify for a Little Known Health Care Benefit of Up to $2,903 per Month, Tax Free?
For many veterans in Massachusetts, the rising cost of assisted living or home health care can be staggering.
Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefits
Veterans and their surviving spouses can be entitled to a little-known benefit called "Aid & Attendance Benefits.” Those veterans and/or their survivors only need to prove that their medical expenses exceed certain income and asset limitations. The maximum benefit available can provide significant help in paying for long term care costs.

For those who qualify, this benefit can result in significant monthly income from the VA. The amount of income varies based upon a number of factors but can reach a maximum for certain veterans of nearly $2,903 per month. That amount of money can enormously improve the quality of life and care for our nation’s veterans and their spouses. The income could help pay for the costs of assisted living or at-home care. However, it is critical to work with a Qualified Elder Law Attorney, since mistakes in VA planning may jeopardize Medicaid/nursing home benefits down the road.
