I have been taking care of a man that is a Veteran. How do I go about getting paid for doing this for him?

Aid and Attendance is well worth looking into but be prepared to dig up records on your patient that go back decades. I was told about the A&A and I had to find my dad's induction notice (I think that was what it was called). One of the zillion forms he filled out when he enlisted 60 years prior. I never could find it although I discovered other papers but without that one form he couldn't get A&A.

weakley69, kudos to you for taking care of a veteran. The VA's Aid and Attendance benefit that Ahmijoy mentioned is $1,830 max. per month for a single war-time veteran. If you think your veteran will qualify, before you actually have him submit an application to the VA, you should have a Personal Care Agreement (PCA) in place. You can read more about PCAs at https://www.agingcare.com/articles/personal-care-agreements-compensate-family-caregivers-181562.htm Best wishes.

Check out “Aid and Attendence” on the VA site.
