Please check with a CPA about this, as there are different rules in different states, and each circumstance is slightly different. You should have expert financial advice before deciding this.
Good luck - I hope so.

The Aid and Attendance Benefit for our Veterans are received tax-free to the recipient. Veterans are elgibile if they served in WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. For those wartime veterans who entered active duty starting September 8, 1980, the eligibilty requirements are a bit stricter. The Veteran must have served at least 24 months or the full period for which called or ordered to active duty. those in service from August 2, 1990 to present are also eligible for this benefit.

Those hoping to qualify can seek out free help through a regional, state or county-level Veterans office or go to www.va.gov. Then click on locations and then click on State Veterans Affairs orrifces or Regional Benefit Offices. You can also email the Department of Veterans Affairs at www.iris.va.gov or call them at

All VA non-service connected pensions (Basic, Homebound, and Aid and Attendance) are deemed as income for federal and state income tax purposes.

The VA's Aid and Attendance Pension is "tax-free" income and is not included in returns. This is national and not state dependent.

The VA is not going to send out anything regarding this income as it is not taxable income.
