What is the maximum monthly benefit a veteran can receive under VA Aid and Attendance?
Those amounts are determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs for wartime veterans or for veterans who have passed away whose spouse is still living and needs long-term care. The maximum monthly amount now for 2016 is set at $1,788 per month in cash payment for a veteran. For a spouse of a deceased wartime veteran, that amount is now $1,149 per month. There are different amounts when a veteran has a dependent, which is usually the spouse, and it can be well over $2,000 a month.
