A non-service connected pension is payable to any Veteran who is permanently and totally disabled and who meets certain income and asset limits set by congress. The Veteran must have served a minimum of 90 days active duty of which at least one day is during a wartime period. Income, unreimbursed medical expenses and the number of dependents could affect eligibility and the amount of the pension.
