Many veterans and their spouses have no idea that they are eligible to receive a wide variety of benefits. Often, these programs are overlooked by veterans and their families due to difficulty understanding the complex eligibility requirements.
At Cartier & Bower, LLC, we help all of our clients understand the available veteran programs they qualify for and provide assistance in filing their claims. Aid & Attendance is a key program.
Did you know that if you or your spouse served at least 90 days active duty in the armed services, and at least one of these days was during any U.S. wartime set by Congress, that you may be able to collect a veteran’s benefit pension? With these pensions, the eligible veteran does not need to have a disability related to their military service. Since these non-service connected pensions are not widely known by most veterans, they aren’t often utilized. A husband and wife would qualify for over $24,000 per year.
We believe that every eligible veteran who has served his or her country with honor is entitled to the pensions and benefits
In addition to benefits available to veterans, the widow or widower of a veteran may also qualify for benefits under the Aid and Attendance program. A surviving, non-veteran spouse may be eligible for up to $1,113.00 per month. This money can in some instances be used towards the cost of care at an assisted living facility or paying for home care services.
At Cartier & Bower, LLC, we believe that every eligible veteran who has served his or her country with honor is entitled to the pensions and benefits that are provided through the Department of Veterans Affairs.
