Veterans Benefits: Getting the Information You Need

The Veterans Administration offers its wartime veterans (and their surviving spouses) a special pension called the Aid and Attendance Benefit.  This benefit is intended to help veterans (and their surviving spouses) pay for long term care.  This benefit is often misunderstood or unknown.  We provide information on our website and through community seminars.  Here are some seminars that are coming up:

  • Veteran Benefits Seminar at Plantation South of Dunwoody
    Event Date: Saturday, April 28th – 9:30 am – 10:30 am

    Event Date: Wednesday, May 16th – 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
    The “Aid and Attendance” benefit is one of the VA’s best-kept secrets from our retired service men and women.  Veterans over age 65 who are disabled can be eligible for as much as $2019 per month in addition to any other VA pension or service-related benefit they may receive.  Surviving spouses can qualify for up to $1094 per month.  Learn more about this “hidden benefit” and other non-service related benefits.  Larry Robert with Vitas Hospice and Michelle Allen with Hurley Elder Care Law will be at the Benton House in Newnan to share information.  This event is free and open to the public.
