You may qualify for veteran benefits but you need a veterans benefits law firm in Denver to help you figure it all out.
For example, did you know that a veteran may be able to receive up to $2,120.00 per month towards his or her assisted living or nursing home costs?
Did you know that a deceased veteran’s spouse might qualify for up to $1,149.00 per month to pay for her long term care? This is not a service connected disability benefit. If you were in active service for 90 days, one day during wartime and were “other than dishonorably discharged”, you may qualify.
At Meurer Law, where our focus is on elder-law, our veterans benefits law firm in Denver can assist senior citizens and their families obtain a lesser known benefit, the “Non-Service Connected Pension” aid and attendance benefit.
Unlike Medicaid which only reimburses designated, qualified providers for services, this veteran’s benefit comes in the form of a monthly check paid directly to the veteran. This allows choice in providers (including non-spouse family members!) and in what setting (home-care, assisted living, nursing home) the best care is provided.
