I have been looking, reading, and researching this and I can find no where where it is written that a person, or family can have up to $80,000 in assets. I have even read Chapter 3 of Title 38 which is the actual legislation that outlines the Aide and Attendance Pension. In fact the wording spells out that the claimant can have the difference between the cost of care and their income for 12 months or $10,000 which ever is the lowest amount. Can anyone shed light on this? I have seen this amount written several times on this and other websites that are not affiliated wth the VA and I am finding that this is just not true. Even the VSO's that I have spoken with agree that this number is very misleading. Who can help me with this?
