Va Pension Question


carlie

Question

I have a 2 tour RVN vet that is rated for one SC disability at zero percent.

His income is about three thousand dollars per year, from mowing yards and he

actually files and pays taxes and social security on it.

My question is with no more than ths disability rating he has, is there

any possibility he would be eliglble for VA pension. He is about 54-56 years old.

I have not researched pension any - just wondering if there's a possibility.

Thanks,

carlie

Many veterans receive a non-service connected pension from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) based on reaching age 65. Veterans who are under 65 qualify if they are permanently and totally disabled. For disabled veterans, the disability does not have to have any relationship to the veteran's military service. Eligibility for the non-service connected pension requires you to have served during a specific "period of war” such as World War II, Korea, Vietnam, etc. Eligibility is also based upon need, and a veteran is generally eligible if he or she has less than $80,000 in net assets. The home and one motor vehicle are not counted in determining assets. The annual income must also be below certain limits. For 2005, the maximum benefit for a single veteran is $846 per month. If the veteran has a spouse or other dependent, the maximum amount is $1,109 per month. In determining eligibility and the amount of the benefit paid, the VA will subtract any income, such as Social Security or retirement benefits, the veteran and his dependents receive from the maximum amount.

Always,

Betty
