VETERANS IMPROVED PENSION “AID & ATTENDANCE” BENEFIT
If you’ve served our country during wartime, you may be eligible for a little known veteran benefit that may help you pay for recurring unreimbursed medical expenses.
Are you a veteran, aged 65 or older, who served on active duty 90 days or more, at least one of which was during a period of war?
If so, and you are spending large amounts of money on recurring, unreimbursed medical expenses, such as health insurance premiums, medication co-pays and the monthly costs associated with various long term care needs, including:
- Family Caregivers
- Professional Caregivers At-Home
- Independent Living Facilities
- Assisted Living Facilities
- Skilled Nursing Facilities
. . . there may be a benefit which can help you pay for these expenses.
Four Pillars Law Firm educates veterans and their loved ones about how to obtain financial assistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs to defray the costs associated with recurring medical expenses and long term care and to receive the veterans benefits you deserve. The most important benefit we regularly encounter is the Improved Pension “Aid & Attendance” benefit available to veterans or surviving spouses of veterans. The Aid & Attendance benefit is a special monthly pension for veterans suffering from non-service connected disabilities; the benefit is particularly beneficial for qualifying individuals who require caregiver assistance at home or are residents of a long term care facility.
Kelly M. Shovelin, a VA accredited attorney, can help you navigate the complex rules and regulations of the VA prior to application. With the assistance of Attorney Shovelin’s advanced legal planning and guidance, you can protect assets and maximize your eligibility for veterans benefits. The Aid and Attendance benefit offers veterans up to an additional $2,120.00* and surviving spouses up to an additional $1,371.00* per month.
