There is no hard and fast rule when looking at Aid and Attendance. The VA looks at the expenses versus the longevity of liquid assets with a specific algorithm. When I discuss the program with families, I generally quote "around $80,000.

The reason so many people think there is an $80,000 is that over $80,000 further development is required by the VA. Anyone with under $80,000 can get the benefit if they meet the other criteria, sometimes people will mistakenly think you have to have less than that, but there are regulations that allow you to have up to $80,000 if you use them.
