Did you KNOW that there is financial assistance for Veterans or their surviving spouses in Florida to pay for their care?
Many elder veterans think that they may not eligible for assistance for veterans because they were not injured or incapacitated during wartime. Not true!
If you are a Veteran, or the surviving spouse of a Veteran who:
- 1. Served at least 90 days on active duty and at least one day during wartime
- 2. Was honorably discharged
- 3. Meets financial and medical qualifications
- (a) Financial Net worth (home excluded) within VA guidelines.
- (b) Income not exceeding maximum pension amount.
- (c) Requires care or assistance on regular basis.
. . . you may be eligible for the VA non-service connected disability pension of up to $2,000 per month or more through the Federal Government Veteran Aid and Attendance Program.
Problem: Many Veterans are not aware of the program providing assistance for veterans! Finally, when Veterans become aware, the pension typically takes months or even more than a year to approve.
Solution: Advocare can connect you with certified elder law attorneys that can assist Veterans to make application with the Veterans Administration. They will assist the veteran or the veteran’s family to determine if they qualify. There are several types of specific benefits providing assistance for veterans that may be available.
