Rules May Change for VA Aid and Attendance Pension in December

New rules for the Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension may be published in December, 2018.  Originally published in early 2015, the proposed amendments would implement new requirements and restrictions for evaluating income, assets, "net worth" and asset transfers for pension eligibility purposes. The proposed amendments would also make "statutory changes affecting pension beneficiaries who receive Medicaid-covered nursing home care."  The Trump administration has completed its review of the proposed rule changes and has scheduled publication of the Final Rule in December, 2018, according to regulations.gov.
