"My dad has been receiving VA Pension with Aid and Attendance benefits for the last year. He received an "EVR" that we have to complete. What is this for and when is it due?"

Answer:  The EVR is an Eligibility Verification Report that the VA sends yearly to all VA pension recipients.  Because this benefit is awarded based on financial means (limited income and limited resources), the VA verifies each year that the income and the resources are still below the eligibility standard.  The most important components of this form are (a) providing accurate income verification; (b) providing accurate asset information; (c) providing accurate medical expense information; and (d) returning the EVR to the VA no later than March 1st of each year.   Completing this form inaccurately or not turning it in on time causes a lot of veterans to lose their benefits each year.
