Getting help with long-term care can be one of life’s big challenges.
Veterans, and all seniors should plan for a time when they might need help to live their best lives at home, in spite of changes in mobility or cognition. Facing the need for long-term care for yourself or your spouse can be one of the biggest challenges you’ve faced since returning from war. Without help, you might be forfeiting valuable benefits that could support three key facets of wellbeing:
Only 3% of the 15,000,000 veterans who qualify for the Aid & Attendance benefit are taking advantage of it.
The cost of senior care, while helping with health and independence, could wipe out a lifetime of savings and quickly drain the equity in a home.
Many veterans are not aware of an important benefit available through the U.S. Government commonly known as the “Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension Benefit.” This VA benefit can provide over $2000 per month that can be used for personal home care services for veterans and their surviving spouses–for the rest of their lives.
If you are a veteran, over age 65, who served honorably in the active military service during a period of war (or a surviving spouse of a veteran, regardless of age), you may qualify. You need to meet certain asset and income requirements and show that you or your spouse would benefit from assistance with activities of daily living.
Getting approved for the benefit doesn’t have to be long and complicated. Our in-house VA-Accredited Benefits Agents can help you or your family member apply for this benefit from the comfort of their own home and get approved within in just a few months.
