The VA Pension benefits are available for veterans that qualify — they are so important because these benefits (up to $2000 a month) can be the difference between you (or your parents) staying in your home and receiving home health, or staying in an assisted living facility that you enjoy, rather than making that final move to a nursing home.
These benefits may also allow a spouse to remain living in her home while her husband, the veteran, is at an assisted living facility.
Let’s face it — the costs of even assisted living facilities is very high every month. Home health can be expensive. Even just hiring “sitters” to stay with us or our elderly relatives can quickly drain even a substantial amount of money.
So if you, or your family, qualifies for the VA Pension — or what some call Aid and Attendance — then it truly can make a huge difference in your life.
We certainly recommend that you find out if you qualify, and if you don’t learn why you don’t qualify.
Some people will never qualify — others simply need to make some legal changes to your financial situation to be able to qualify.
Either way you will be at peace knowing you are getting whatever benefits you are entitled to in order to give you the best standard of living and freedom that you can have.
