Every Veteran Deserves Their Benefits
The Aid and Attendance benefit is a Department of Veteran Affairs pension program available to surviving spouses or veterans themselves. This pension benefit program supplies those eligible with a monthly income on top of their SSI (Social Security Income).
As you are likely aware, sometimes SSI is not enough. When people require long-term care and assisted living services, their expenses rise. Suddenly they need money to pay for shuttle services, commutes to the hospital or various clinics, and that’s just the beginning of it.
That’s where we come in. We are here to offer advice, thorough and thoughtful consultations, and assistance in all financial, social, and bureaucratic issues you are facing.
We are more than just financial advisors or benefits claims specialists. We are advocates for seniors, and we’re the farthest thing from amateurs. Our board member James Rush, CFP, CRPC, has worked with the nation’s leading investment firms.
What’s more, he’s also a Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor. This merging of financial knowledge and the fundamentals of senior care are what make us qualified to give guidance during your search for adequate care and financial support.
Are You Eligible for Aid and Attendance?
If you’re reading this, you or your loved one is likely eligible for the Aid and Attendance benefit. With so little known about the benefit by those who are eligible, it is unlikely that those who are ineligible even know the benefit exists.
Information about eligibility can be hard to find. That’s one of the many reasons we offer our services to Veterans and other seniors in your area. We want to make sure every person can access the information and resources they need to thrive.
- If you or your spouse has performed 90 days of active duty service (with at least one day during wartime).
- If you are disabled and unable to work, or over the age of 65 and in need of daily assistance.
- If your monthly income (after expenses) is below the maximum benefit limit.
What Can Aid and Attendance Do for You?
There are many people who think that benefits such as these come with certain restrictions. Like your pension itself, the Aid and Attendance benefit can be used for anything that improves your quality of life. Such things include, but are not limited to:
- Health, Nutrition, Fitness Sessions
- Homecare Services
- Senior Moving Services
- Dental Services
- General Living Expenses
- …and more
