Veteran Benefits in Pasadena

Assistance with Collecting Veteran Pension and Benefits

a-1-veteranIf you’re a low-income Elderly U.S. Veteran or the spouse of a Veteran, you could qualify for monetary assistance from the Veteran Administration. The VA offers Veterans’ Pension and the Aid and Attendance benefit for Elder and Senior Veterans who meet a string of requirements, with the bare minimum being that the Veteran served at least 90 days of active duty with at least one day during World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam War, or Gulf War.

The Elder or Senior could be eligible for monthly payments as a result of qualifying for pension or the Aid and Attendance benefit that can assist with the costs of medical expenses or professional caregiving services; however, calculating your total countable income to see if you meet the income criteria and net worth criteria can be difficult.

The difference between your countable income less recurring medical expenses and the Maximum Annual Pension Rate set by Congress will determine how much monetary assistance you may be eligible for.

A-1 Home Care can provide consulting services to help you get an estimate on how much money you could be eligible from the VA, in addition to helping you compile a report on why you should be eligible for Aid and Attendance, which is an Improved Pension that you can only apply for if you have proof that you require the aid of a caregiver to perform basic activities of daily living such as personal hygiene management, dressing, or staying safe at home.

Our case managers can help you get your affairs in order before you apply for pension or send a report to the VA regional office that will secure your chances of qualifying for A&A.
