SUPPORT FOR CAREGIVERS

As a family caregiver you play an important role in caring for the Veteran at home and in the community.

 Announcement

The Final Rule - Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC) Improvements and Amendments under the VA MISSION Act of 2018, can be found on the Federal Register.

Eligibility for the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC) is expanding under the new final regulation and changes will begin in October. PCAFC expansion will occur in two phases, once the Secretary of Veterans Affairs has certified to Congress that VA’s new caregiver information technology system is fully implemented. The first phase will include eligible Veterans who incurred or aggravated a serious injury in the line of duty in the active military, naval, or air service on or before May 7, 1975. WWII, Korean and Vietnam Veterans will be able to apply after the official launch date, which will be announced by VA in mid-September.

The final phase will occur two years following the first date of expansion and will expand PCAFC eligibility to include eligible Veterans from all eras regardless of when an eligible Veteran’s serious injury was incurred or aggravated in the line of duty in the active military, naval, or air service.
