  Veteran Benefits

Although most VA pensions are only for veterans who were wounded or disabled while they were serving in the armed forces, there are millions of veterans and their spouses that may be eligible for special monthly pension benefits solely because they are over 65 years of age and are homebound, in assisted/supportive living, or in a nursing home.

Those veterans and/or their survivors only need to prove that their medical expenses exceed certain income and asset limitations. The maximum benefit available can provide significant help in paying for long term care costs.

Elise is Veterans Benefits Consultant who can assist you and your family by explaining the many difficult-to-understand things about long-term care. There are several considerations that need to be addressed. Let Elise be your advocate and help you understand your options.
