Senior Living for Veterans

Everyone should get the chance to live their golden years to the fullest – especially our nation’s veterans. You’ve spent years dedicating your life to serving our country, now it’s time for you to unwind and spend time on relaxing. The perfect place to begin this new chapter is in a senior living community that takes care of veterans.

Peabody Retirement Community is one of only four senior living communities in Indiana that accepts VA contracts for long-term care, and that’s why we’re working to educate our nation’s heroes on the Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance program to ensure our veteran residents receive the benefits they’ve earned.

Keep reading to learn more about the Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance program, what it takes to qualify and how to ultimately apply to receive the benefits.

What is the Veterans Administration Aid & Attendance Benefits Program?

The Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance Benefit program provides tax-free, monthly monetary payments to certain wartime Veterans that have financial need and to their survivors. Aid and assistance are additional monetary amounts that can be added to the amount of an individual’s monthly VA pension.

How to Know if You Qualify for the VA Program

It’s easy to figure out whether or not you qualify for the program, you simply must currently be getting a VA pension and meet at least one of the requirements listed below:

  • You need another person to help you perform daily activities like bathing, dressing or feeding
  • You are a patient in a nursing home due to the loss of mental or physical abilities related to a disability
  • An illness requires you to stay in bed – or spend a large portion of the day in bed
  • Your eyesight is limited (even with glasses or contact lenses, you only have 5/200 or less in both eyes; or contraction of the visual field to 5 degrees or less)

If you are currently receiving a VA pension and meet one of the requirements listed above, you might be eligible for the Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance Benefit program.

How to Apply for the VA Program

In order to receive Veterans Administration Aid, you will need to complete your Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance application either by mail or in person. If you are eligible for the program, there are a few ways you can apply to receive benefits:

  • Apply by sending a completed VA form to your pension management center. You can have your doctor fill out the examination information section. You can download your VA Form 21-2680 here.
  • Apply in-person by simply bringing your information to a VA regional office near you. You can find the location nearest to you here.
