Pension and Aid & Attendance
The VA has programs available for veterans or for the single surviving spouse of the deceased veteran through disability income. These programs are called Disability Pension and Death Pension. It is required that the veteran had serviced on active duty for least 90 days, and one of those days were during a period of war. It is not required that the veteran provided Service combat, just that the veteran was in service during the period of war and was honorably discharged.
There is also another benefit to Pension, which is Compensation. Compensation is for veterans who became disabled due to injuries or illnesses while the veteran was on active duty.
It is important to note that a veteran cannot receive Pension or Compensation at the same time.
