What is countable income for veteran’s AID AND ATTENDANCE eligibility purposes?

 Any income received by the veteran and in the household is countable income. It includes earnings, disability and retirement payments, interest and dividends, and net income from farming or business.

Please note that the VA and Medicaid view income and assets differently – for example – there is a presumption that all of a child’s income is available to or for the veteran and Medicaid has a five year look back period unlike the VA.

To increase your monthly income, please contact us about a FREE VA benefits HANDBOOK, written by David Wingate, an accredited VA Attorney, of Senior Life Care Planning, LLC, or if you require additional information about VA Benefits, visit our Maryland Veterans Benefits website.
