    What is VA Pension?
    The Veterans Administration (VA) offers a monthly cash payment to wartime veterans who meet certain service requirements, income and net worth requirements. Many older clients who served during a time of war may qualify for this benefit to help them pay for care expenses, and avoid having to enter a nursing home and qualify for Medicaid. This type of benefit is often referred to as "Aid and Attendance."
