As the owner of SYNERGY HomeCare of Rochester, I routinely get phone calls from family members of veterans trying to apply for the VA Aide & Attendance pension for their father and/or mother. To be eligible for the pension, the veteran must say yes to the four requirements listed below.

1. Veteran must have served on active duty 90 consecutive days of which 1 day was during declared war.

Korean conflict      June 27, 1950 through January 31, 1955

Vietnam Era           August 5, 1964 through May 7, 1975

Gulf War      August 2, 1990 through a date to be set by law or Presidential Proclamation

2. Veteran must have received discharge other than dishonorable.

3. Veteran must be at least 65 years of age or be receiving social security disability.

4. Veteran’s medical needs - help with at least 2 activities of daily living (ADLs); such as bathing, dressing, eating, medicating, toileting or transferring.

Also remember if you are seeking this pension for widowed mother, she must have been married to the veteran at the time of the veteran’s death.
