Veterans Benefits/Veterans and Surviving Spouses

Providing You With The Benefits You Have Earned for Service to Our Country

Many veterans facing long term care issues and their families do not realize the help that can be available through veterans benefit programs. There are two major disability benefits available to veterans through the Department of Veterans Affairs. The first, compensation, can provide financial assistance to a veteran with a service connected disability. The second, pension, refers to financial assistance made to a veteran or their dependant based on need.

Aid and Attendance is a benefit that is available to a veteran or their dependant who is both disabled and requires the aid and attendance of another person to avoid the hazards of their daily environment. You could be eligible even if you or your spouse were not injured during military service or a military retiree.

If you are a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran, you need experienced legal representation to help ensure you receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled.

There are many good resources available to the Veteran or the Surviving spouse on how apply for help. Unfortunately, many “experts” either misunderstand VA benefits or are to focused on only those benefits such that their advice will impact your ability to access other resources. Let us help you place all of your options in the right order.
