What financial help can a veteran find?

Homebound veterans who served at least one day during a wartime period and are low-income (household income under $19,736 for a single veteran) might qualify for an Aid and Attendance Allowance, whereby monetary aid can be used to pay a caregiver who is a family member.

Veterans and surviving spouses of veterans can apply for the program. And veterans or surviving spouses with higher incomes but with significant medical expenses not covered by Medicare or private insurance also may be eligible.

One of the best ways for veterans and their families to find out more is to visit their county courthouse, says Tom Pamperin, deputy under secretary for disability assistance at the Veterans Benefits Administration.
