We live in a great country. In large part, this is due to the great sacrifice that our veterans have made, and the sacrifices that men and women in uniform make every day.
Statistics say that one in two Americans will need long-term care. There are many ways to curtail the financial burden that long-term care creates, but veterans are able to take advantage of special programs through the Department of Veteran’s Affairs. One of the programs that the VA offers is the Aid and Attendance pension. The pension ranges from $1000 to $2000 per month and is paid directly to the veteran recipient to be spent for expenses incurred.
The Aid and Attendance pension is available to any veteran or surviving spouse if the veteran served at least 90 days of active duty, of which at least one day was during war-time.
If you or someone you love is a veteran who needs some assistance covering long-term care costs, please contact Skillern Law Firm, PLLC today. Taking care of our veterans is an honor.
