Wartime Pension

   

If you are a U.S. veteran who served during specific wartime periods or are the surviving spouse of one, you may be eligible for the little-known Wartime Pension Benefits. The pension is intended to provide a guaranteed minimum income for veterans over 65 or their survivors who qualify.

 

A veteran or his/her survivor who is eligible for the Wartime Veterans Pension may also be qualified for the additional Aid and Attendance Supplement or the Housebound Supplement. These supplements are paid in addition to the basic pension, and provide a small additional income for persons who either need daily assistance with everyday living tasks or are substantially confined to their home.
