If you’ve served your country as a veteran, you deserve the benefits that are due you. But it can be complicated and confusing. You may qualify for veteran benefits but you need a veterans benefits law firm to advocate for you.
Did you know that if you are a deceased veteran’s spouse, you might qualify for up to $1,149.00 per month to pay for your long term care? This is not a service connected disability benefit. If the veteran was in active service for 90 days and one day during wartime and was not dishonorably discharged, you may qualify.
The non-service connected pension, also known as the improved pension program, can help veterans who served during certain war-time periods obtain money that can help them pay for assisted living, nursing homes and long term care facilities.
For example, did you know that as a veteran you may be able to receive up to $2,120.00 per month towards your assisted living or nursing home costs?
At Meurer Law, where our focus is on elder-law, the veterans benefits law firm can assist senior citizens and their families obtain a lesser known benefit, the “Non-Service Connected Pension” aid and attendance benefit.
You may not be getting what you deserve. You need a veterans benefits law firm to find out what benefits you might be missing. We can help you.
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.
There are asset and income limitations on this benefit, but with expert planning by our veterans benefits law firm, many veterans can re-position their assets to qualify.
Every attorney at Meurer Law is an accredited attorney with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs. We will be glad to help you find out if you qualify for these veterans benefits. If you qualify, you should be getting them. You deserve them.
