The Circle of Life - Financial Resources

How does the Armed Forces Retirement Homes cater to your Financial Needs?

You’ve worked your entire life with sweat, blood, time, and even tears so why not reward yourself with living in a place that gives you the dignity and care you deserve?

For obvious reasons, some of the most frequently asked questions are about the cost of living in one of these homes.

What are the basic costs and what is covered?

AFRH Resident Fees (as of January 1, 2019):

Independent Living: 46.7 % of total current income (not to exceed $1,990 / month)
Independent Living Plus: 50 % of total current income (not to exceed $2,261 / month)
Assisted Living: 63 % of total current income (not to exceed $4,729 / month)
Long Term Care: 70 % of total current income (not to exceed $6,642/ month)
Memory Support: 70% of total current income (not to exceed $6,713/ month)

Note: fees are computed annually and adjusted for inflation each January. The AFRH Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) is based on military retirement pay COLA. Fees are computed using the most recently filed tax forms.

Are there additional charges for care and what are those?

For each care level, there is an increase in the charge for the care that is given. For example, as you can see in the Resident Fees above, the price goes up depending on the level of care you need. 

If you are living independently with no assistance the price is much lower than if you needed long term care.
