All of an applicant’s “countable income” – meaning any income received by a veteran and his or her dependents from earnings, disability and retirement payments, interest and dividends, and net income from farming or business. Any deductions will then be subtracted from the total of your countable income. The remaining countable income is deducted from the appropriate annual pension limit which is determined by the number of your dependents, if any, and whether or not you are entitled to household or aid and attendance benefits. This amount is then divided by 12 and rounded down to the nearest dollar. This gives you the amount of your potential monthly pension payment.
