VETERANS AID AND ATTENDANCE SPECIAL PENSION

(1/1)

POPPA T:
THIS IS MY FIRST POSTING ON THIS WEBSITE FOR VETERANS.  I HAVE A QUESTION REGARDING MY BENEFITS.  I JOINED THE NAVAL RESERVE IN 1956, SERVED TWO YEARS ACTIVE DUTY 1958-1960, HONORABLY DISCHARGED AND SERVED A TOTAL OBLIGATION OF EIGHT YEARS.  WOULD I BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE ASSISTED LIVING BENEFIT.  I AM NOW 71 YEARS OLD.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP FELLOW VETERANS.

Jim,

I am sorry to say that based on your dates of service, you would not be entitled to non-service connected pension with A&A.  There is no wartime service during the dates you provided.  The only thing possibly is service-connected compensation if you were treated for an injury or disease in service.  Sorry to not be able to deliver better news.
