PCAFC - Reassessments

As part of the VA MISSION Act of 2018, VA has initiated a large-scale effort to complete reassessments of Legacy Participants, Legacy Applicants and their Family Caregivers participating in the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC). 

Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC) Reassessment News

VA is committed to supporting Veterans’ caregivers as a top priority.

We are listening to concerns and working diligently to address them as we continue to ensure Veterans and their caregivers get the support they need and deserve.

Here’s what Veterans’ caregivers can expect: 

  • We’re going to review and examine the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC) eligibility criteria.  
  • We’re going to complete reassessments of Legacy Participants, Legacy Applicants and their Family Caregivers. Any caregiver eligible for an increase in caregiver benefits will receive them.
  • We will not remove anyone from the program or decrease any support based on reassessments before we re-examine our current eligibility criteria.  We will consider making changes if necessary.
  • The program is still on track to expand to include Veterans of all service eras on October 1, 2022. 

There’s a lot to do to build on these first steps and we’ll communicate those details as they come. We’ll stop at nothing to make sure Veterans and their caregivers get the support they need and deserve. 

We are working diligently to develop additional information for Legacy Participants, Legacy Applicants and their Family Caregivers who have already received reassessment determinations.
