Aid & Attendance Pension: What Every Nebraska Veteran Should Know

Nebraska is home to an estimated 143,000 veterans who have served our country. As veterans live, work, and age in Nebraska it is important that they have access to every benefit they deserve. The Aid &Attendance Pension is a benefit designed to ensure successful aging for veterans and their spouses. The Aid & Attendance Pension may range from $1,000 to $1,800. Until now, Aid and Attendance has remained unknown to many veterans and their families.

In general, this benefit is for those veterans who require the aid and attendance of another for the activities of daily living. The activities of daily living can range from cleaning, dressing, eating, bathing etc. It is not mandatory that all of these activities be required, just that some are needed. It has been our experience that the veteran or person applying must not be driving any longer to receive A&A.

Additionally, if the veteran has passed then his or her surviving spouse is eligible for A&A.  Also, if the veteran is still independent but their spouse is ill the couple may be eligible if the ill spouses' medical expenses are depleting their combined income. 

Your local Veterans Service Office will assist you in your application for this benefit.  Here is the list of Nebraska Veteran's Service Offices and their contact information.

Thank you to each and every one of our veterans.
