Retired veterans who served during a wartime period may qualify for the Veterans Assistance Aid and Attendance pension benefit. Claims generally take 6 to 9 months to process, although the first check is retroactive from the time of application. Individual circumstances determine the size of assistance. The following four items—among others—are considered:
- Medical conditions that prevent a veteran or surviving spouse from earning a living
- Assistance needs
- Monthly income
- Liquid assets.
