New VA Pension Rates for 2013

 

While the “official” federal update has not yet been released, the listservs are abuzz with the newest 2013 improved pension rates.  Following the 1.7% cost of living adjustment that we know will be applied, here are the anticipated pension rate updates for 2013:

For the Veteran

Service Pension $1,037
One Dependent $1,359

Housebound $1,259
One Dependent $1,570

Aid and Attendance $1,731
One Dependent $2,053

For the Surviving Spouse

Death Pension $695
One Dependent $911

Housebound $851
One Dependent $1,110

Aid and Attendance $1,112
One Dependent $1,327

Again, this is speculation based on the cost of living adjustment, and the numbers should not be relied upon at this point.  The federal update has not been released.  Thank you to ElderCounsel and VisPro for originally posting this information.
