When you signed up to serve in the military, they didn't ask you about your assets. They were happy to have you, and you were proud to serve. But now, your assets could keep you from qualifying for important benefits.
Veteran's Aid & Attendance is a tax-free income benefit for disabled or partially-disabled war-time veterans and their spouses. The annual benefit may range from over $14,000 to over $36,000. For many veterans or their spouses, this additional income could be life-changing.
