Veterans Pension is a monetary benefit payable to low-income wartime Veterans. Generally, a Veteran must have at least 90 days of active duty service, with at least one day during a wartime period to qualify for a VA Pension.
Additionally, the Veteran must be:
- Age 65 or older, or
- Totally and permanently disabled, or
- A patient in a nursing home receiving skilled nursing care, or
- Receiving Social Security Disability Insurance, or
- Receiving Supplemental Security Income.
Your yearly family income must be less than the amount set by Congress to qualify for the Veterans Pension benefit. Note, there are other exceptions and qualifications if you entered service after September 7, 1980.
