Veterans Benefits

IF… you are a Veteran or widow of a Veteran who served at least 90 days active duty with at least one day served during a war-time period, and you were discharged other than dishonorably,

AND IF… you have just enough assets to last 12 months or less (not necessarily including your home and automobile),

AND IF…your income each year is less than the threshold set by the Veterans Administration;

NOTE: The actual cost of unreiumbursed medical care minus 5% of the MAPR (Maximum Annual Pension Rate) can be used to offset your annual income. Medical care may include, but is not limited to, monthly charges by assisted living or nursing facilities, adult care home, costs of doctor’s appointments and non-reimbursed prescription amounts, medical supplies, eye glasses, hearing aids, travel to medical appointments, etc.

THEN… You may be eligible for a cash benefit from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

THOSE THAT… have a medical diagnosis by a doctor (yours and/or the VA doctor) that states that you cannot live independently and need regular assistance and care, MAY QUALIFY FOR MORE!!!

Many people are aware of this benefit and are led to believe that if their medical expenses are high that they will automatically qualify for this benefit.

Every government program has its own set of eligibility criteria. It is important to collect all of the information necessary before you make a move. The Veterans Administration pays cash to you if you qualify.
