    I jumped to the VetAssist.org website from here. It appears to contradict the income eligibilty levels listed on this website. They state that as a rule of thumb, ASSETS(not including home and vehicles) must be below $80,000 but the income of the vet and the spouse must be less than $22,113/yr (once unreimbursed medical expenses have been subtracted). My parents would meet the eligibilty requirements as listed on your website, but I'm not sure they would according to the VetAssist.org website. Can you help clear this up?

    Net Income FOR VA PURPOSES is Net Income minus unreimbursed medical expense, including 75% of assisted living cost. That is why, if people call the VA hot line and answer the question "how much income do you make in a year" with the normal response to that question they will be told they have too much income - net income for VA purposes is AFTER you deduct unreimbursed medical expenses.
