Interviewer:  Are there any long-term care benefits available for widows of veterans?

Becky:  Yes there are.

Widows of veterans get some of the same benefits that our veterans have as well. Some of those benefits are lower in dollar amount. They can receive a pension cash assistance program as well as The Aid and Attendance Program, which is if they have a lower asset and lower income but they need some long-term care. There could be some cash assistance for them as well.
