Due to the changes in inflation and cost of living, the Department of Veterans Affairs has made the first cost-of-living adjustment since 2008, which will bring a 3.6% increase in benefits.  The VA manual now lists the 2012 pension figures, which reflect the aforementioned 3.6% cost-of-living adjustment.  The new Aid & Attendance benefit figures, effective December 1, 2011, are as follows:

  • Single Veteran: $1,703
  • Married Veteran: $2,019
  • Surviving Spouse of a Veteran: $1,094
