Home ยป Can a widow of a veteran receive VA Aid and Attendance?

The answer is yes depending on a few circumstances. The widow is going to be claiming on the history, the war time history, of her deceased husband, the veteran. If the spouse however, meaning the widow, if she has either divorced the veteran prior to demise or has remarried then that interrupts the claim that she would have for the Aid & Attendance Benefit. That is important to look at as to whether the widow is actually entitled to the benefit or not depending on the marriage status. Because you'll have to prove the marriage status in the VA Aid & Attendance application because you are claiming on the history of the deceased veteran.
