Veterans Program in NJ | Aid & Attendance Benefit

Visiting Angels of Mercer & Burlington Counties provides qualifying New Jersey veterans and their widowed spouses with home care at no personal cost—well before they are awarded the Aid & Attendance home care benefit from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

Qualifying veterans and their widowed spouses may be eligible for the Aid & Attendance benefit from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Once the veteran’s application for this benefit has been approved, a veteran can receive home care services funded by the U.S. government. However, it may take between 8-12 months for the application to be approved, thus delaying much-needed care.

Visiting Angels Provides Home Care Services to Qualifying Veterans Faster—At No Personal Cost or Risk

Visiting Angels offers a Veterans Program in which we will start servicing qualifying veterans or their surviving spouses shortly after submitting their applications for Aid & Attendance benefit program—before VA approval. If the VA eventually approves the veteran’s application, the government will pay for the home care services that Visiting Angels provided during the 8-12 month processing period. However, if the VA rejects a veteran’s application, neither the veteran nor the veteran’s family will be charged for any home care assistance provided under Visiting Angels’ Veterans Program.

The Veteran’s Aid & Attendance Benefit Program: Who May Qualify

A veteran:
  • Has a non-service related disability
  • Is unable to perform at least two activities of daily living
  • Must have served ninety consecutive days active duty, with at least one day during wartime
  • Must also hold an Honorable Discharge status
A widowed spouse must have been:
  • Married to the veteran at the time of the veteran’s death and never remarried
  • Married to the veteran for at least one year or have had children by the veteran
  • Living with the veteran at the time of the veteran’s death, unless the separation was due to medical or military reasons
Financial requirements:
  • Total combined household assets (excludes the primary home and car) cannot exceed a cap that is based on the age of the veteran or his widowed spouse and ranges from $10,000 to $40,000.
  • Veterans must satisfy the Veterans Affairs’ Low Income provision. Their net monthly income, after deducting certain medical expenses, must be low enough to meet the VA’s criteria
Medical requirements:
  • Certification by the individual’s doctor stating they are in need of assistance due to an existing medical condition (acute or chronic)

Estimated Benefits Available

  • Veteran with Spouse: May cover up to 75 hours each month for home care services
  • Veteran, Single: May cover up to 65 hours each month
  • Veteran’s Widowed Spouse: May receive up to 40 hours each month

These are guidelines and may vary. For full details, visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website at www.va.gov.
