Here are a few hilights:
There are 409,997 veterans in Alabama.
9,314 receive pensions and 68,468 receive disability compensation payments.
By all estimates, the number of Alabama veterans who are eligible for VA compensation (service related disability) greatly exceeds the number who actually receive it.
The same is true for Alabama veterans 65 or older who qualify for the monthly VA Pension or “Aid and Attendance” benefits but who are not receiving it. This benefit can exceed $2000 a month.
If you live in Alabama and have questions about this benefit, please feel free to get with us by calling us at 205-879-2447.
