VA Pension Benefits Can Help Pay for Care At Home Or In An Assisted Living / Nursing Community!
Are you a veteran or a surviving (& unremarried) spouse of a veteran that served during war time? Are you over 65 or disabled? Do you need care in a nursing community, assisted living community, or at home?

If you answered yes to all three of those questions you can likely qualify for a monthly payment from the VA. The VA Improved Pension, commonly known as "Aid and Attendance", was established to provide monthly tax free financial assistance to Veterans and their spouses, allowing them to live their lives in dignity and afford basic necessities. This benefit is not dependent upon service related injuries. It helps cover the cost of qualified un-reimbursed medical expenses, including in-home care and assisted living facility care.
There are numerous requirements to receive these particular Veteran Pension Benefits. They are:
  • The Veteran must have served on active duty for at least 90 days, 1 of these days must be during a war time period (but not necessarily "boots on the ground" or "in country")
  • The Veteran must also have received a better than dishonorable discharge
  • For a widow(er) to receive benefits, he or she must meet the Veteran’s qualifications as well as having been married to Veteran at the time of the Veteran’s death and have not remarried.
  • The income of the person applying
  • The assets of the person applying
  • Recurring Unreimbursed Medical Expenses (like care costs, etc.)
Unfortunately, these requirements are often misunderstood, even by the VA. This misunderstanding leads to Veterans and widows being told erroneously that they do not qualify for the benefits.  
Once you've learned the basics you might consider attending a free workshop, or taking advantage of a free asset protection & VA benefits qualification consultation.
