VA Benefits

by | May 10, 2013 | Wills and Trusts

Wartime veterans or their widows may qualify for benefits from the VA to help pay for care as they age. This benefit may be available to pay for in home care, assisted living, or nursing home.

In order to qualify for the maximum benefit, legal planning is usually needed. We work with families regularly to help prepare them to qualify for the maximum benefit. A married veteran may qualify for over $2,000 per month in benefits. A widow of a veteran may qualify for over $1,100 per month in benefits. Download our current handout — The Nuts and Bolts of Veterans Benefits — on who can qualify and for how much.

The VA process can be complicated. Let us help your family understand the potential benefits and what planning may be needed before your application is filed. If you have any questions or would like to meet with one of our Elder Care Advisors, give us a call at 217-726-9200.
