Who should apply? WASHINGTON (Dec. 19, 2006) - The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) reached out to inform wartime veterans and surviving spouses of deceased wartime veterans about an under-used, special monthly pension benefit called Aid and Attendance.
"Veterans have earned this benefit by their service to our nation." said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson. "We want to ensure that every veteran or surviving spouse who qualifies has the chance to apply."
That's good information to know, but who are these qualified individuals the VA is talking about?
All WWI widow(er)s. WWII, Korean Conflict and Veitnam veterans and thier widow(er)s may be eligible!
Approximately 16 million men and women served in the US Military during WWII alone. If we estimate that the majority of those men and woman married, that makes roughly 30 million Americans who may be entitled to benefits.
