    Can anyone answer this question? Can a military retiree apply for benefits under veteran with sick spouse if the scost of care for the spouse depletes the veteran total family income below the threshold?

    CVSO,

    Yes, you are correct. If the combined total monthly income for the couple is depleted due to the cost of care of the sick spouse, you can certainly apply for the Aid and Attendance Benefit. Full instructions on how to apply and the forms you will need are here: http://www.veteranaid.org/apply.php

    Kaylin is correct, but you must first verify that the dates of service fall under An Approved Period of War in order to be eligible.
