Hi Michele, thanks for asking! Your aunt should not run out of her veterans spouse benefits, as they will continue to cover her as long as she needs care. If she does apply for state assistance such as Medicare, however, she will need to notify the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs ( and they will adjust her pension accordingly.

Hope this helps!
