Our experience with assisting veterans and their spouse allows us to increase their income for in-home care, assisted living, and memory care.
There are thousands of veterans and their surviving spouse that haven’t been told that they have earned the right to receive a benefit known as “Aid & Attendance”. If the veteran served during a time of war/conflict and has any care needs, he and his spouse can qualify for up to $27,194 per year of benefits. The benefit is considered to be a reimbursement for care.
There are restrictions for eligibility and we understand them. More importantly, we understand how to design a plan that will get you the benefit you have earned and make sure that you are still set up to receive Medicaid in the event you or your spouse needs a skilled nursing facility. This is important because many VA planners don’t understand all the Medicaid rules and regulations.
The current benefit amounts for Aid & Attendance are:
Married Veteran = Up to $2,266 per month
Single Veteran = Up to $1,912 per month
Surviving Spouse = Up to $1,230 per month
Married spouse = Basic pension up to $1,501 per month
If your future care costs concern you, please don't hesitate to contact us. We appreciate and respect your service to our Country.
