Financial Cost Information

The financial cost to the veteran for residing at the New Hampshire Veterans Home is dependent on the veteran's assets.

  • The applicant’s home is not a countable asset if the spouse or civil union partner or a dependent child is residing in the home, or if legal documents demonstrate other ownership.
  • There is a required one year look-back of all assets, including the assets of the spouse if the veteran is still married.


Cost of Care

The cost of care is determined as follows:

  • With assets above $30,000: The veteran's room and board charges will be as a self-pay resident at a rate of $348.00 per day (subject to yearly change) until assets are less than $ 30,000.
  • With assets less than $30,000: the veteran's room and board charges will be based on the veteran's total monthly income * using the following formula:
John Doe
Veteran's total monthly income: $____________ $1000.00
Deduct $l00.00 (for the veteran): - l00.00 - 100.00
New total of monthly income: $____________ $ 900.00
Multiply by 90%** and you arrive at x .90
The monthly cost to the veteran: $____________ $ 810.00

*Monthly income: Represents all income received from federal, state or private companies, to include, but not limited to social security, retirement of any kind, interest income, annuities, VA disability/compensation check and other income sources received by the veteran including long-term care insurance.
