VA Gives Veterans Money to Pay for Elder Care Services at Home

VA Gives Veterans Money to Pay for Elder Care Services at Home

 

Under the right conditions, about 33% of all seniors in this country could qualify for up to $1,843 a month in additional income from the Department of Veterans Affairs. This money can be used to pay just about anyone to provide elder care services at home.  As an example, these funds can be used to pay children, other relatives, friends, home care companies, or domestic workers.  Adequate documentation and evidence must be provided in order to receive money from VA for these services, particularly the services provided by family members or other non-professional providers.

 

This little-known source of money for paying long term care costs is known as Veterans' Pension and is available to veterans who served on active duty during a period of war.  It is also available to the single surviving spouses of war-time veterans.  Pension is also known popularly as the "aid and attendance" benefit.  Of approximately 35 million Americans age 65 and older in this country, about 11.5 million are veterans who served during a period of war or their surviving spouses.  This represents about 33% of the senior population.

 

The Pension (or "aid and attendance") benefit has an income and an asset test.  Veteran households with income or assets above the test levels will not qualify for the benefit.  Fortunately, there are special provisions that allow  -  under certain circumstances  -  individuals who would normally fail the income and asset tests to still qualify for a Pension benefit.

 

VA never tells potential applicants about the special provisions.  Like many other governmental benefits, the special provisions are the key to qualifying for the "aid and attendance" benefit  -  and have been a well-kept secret . . . UNTIL NOW.

 

The attorneys and staff at Habiger & Associates Elder Law Office (HAELO) have discovered the secret to qualifying their clients for this valuable benefit, and now are helping many veterans or their surviving widows to obtain the "aid and attendance" benefit to pay for the help they need  -  so they can continue to live at home without going broke.

 

NOTE:  HAELO offers detailed instructions, FREE of charge and without obligation, to help veteran households receive this valuable source of revenue to pay for home care, in its popular "Nuts & Bolts Guide to Veterans' Benefits".  Call, write, fax, or e-mail your request.  Simply provide your name and address as well as that of the veteran or surviving spouse.
