Pensions for Veterans

Those who serve in the military and meet certain qualifications may qualify for the Veterans Pension, which is a monthly monetary benefit that is tax-free. The Veterans Pension is also need-based, meaning only those who meet a certain level of income qualify for the benefit.

Those minimum requirements include at least 90 days of active duty during a wartime period (WWI, WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War or the Gulf War) or at least 24 months if you entered active duty after Sept. 7, 1980.

Applicants also must be:
  • Age 65 or older, or
  • Completely and permanently disabled, or
  • A nursing home patient receiving skilled nursing care, or
  • Receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), or
  • Receiving Social Security Income (SSI)

Also available to families of veterans is the Survivors Pension. This program is available for low-income, unmarried surviving spouses or unmarried children of deceased veterans. Veterans and survivors with additional needs, who require assistance or must remain at home, can apply for supplemental income such as Aid & Attendance (AA) and Housebound plans.
