1. The veteran (or surviving spouse) is bedridden, in that his/her disability or disabilities requires that he/she remain in bed apart from any prescribed course of convalescence or treatment, OR,

2. The veteran (or surviving spouse) is a patient in a nursing home due to mental or physical incapacity, OR,

3. The veteran (or surviving spouse) is blind, or so nearly blind as to have corrected visual acuity of 5/200 or less, in both eyes, or concentric contraction of the visual field to 5 degrees or less.

Housebound is paid in addition to monthly pension. Like A&A, Housebound benefits may not be paid without eligibility to pension. A veteran (or surviving spouse) may be eligible for Housebound benefits when:

1. The veteran (or surviving spouse) has a single permanent disability evaluated as 100-percent disabling AND, due to such disability, he/she is permanently and substantially confined to his/her immediate premises, OR,

2. The veteran (or surviving spouse) has a single permanent disability evaluated as 100-percent disabling AND, another disability, or disabilities, evaluated as 60 percent or more disabling.
