VA Caregiver Support Program Update 2023

Veterans and Caregivers in the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC); VA is extending eligibility and applicable benefits for Legacy Participants and Legacy Applicants through Sept. 30, 2025.

VA will not discharge or decrease any support to Legacy Participants, Legacy Applicants, and their Family Caregivers, based on reassessment, to include monthly stipends paid to Primary Family Caregivers, during this time.

VA will continue to complete reassessments of Legacy Participants, Legacy Applicants, and their Family Caregivers at the request of the Veteran or Family Caregiver or if evidence of an increased need for personal care services is identified. Family Caregivers eligible for an increase in their monthly stipend will receive it.

If you receive a PCAFC decision and disagree with that decision, the options to seek further review or appeal of the decision remain the same.
