    Hello, I'm just starting the Aid & Attendance process so this will be the first of many questions, I'm sure.

    My dad was in the Army from 1950 - 1952 and married my mom in 1954. Does my mom still qualify for A&A? Just clarifying that they didn't actually need to be married during his time of service.

    Thank you so much in advance. I'm finding this process so overwhelming and I was so happy to find this resource.

    Amy, you are correct. They did not need to be married during time of service. If you're still unsure on eligibility based on periods of war, we have a new eligibility calculator that is designed to ask short questions to help you find out if the veteran and/or spouse is eligible. You can use that eligibility calculator here.

    Feel free to come back and seek any help or advice you may need!
