Helping Wartime Veterans Obtain the Benefits They Deserve
Many wartime veterans do not seek the benefits that are rightfully owed to them. Whether these veterans are unaware of available benefits or are intimidated by the application process, a large number of Americans who served our country during wartime are not taking full advantage of the financial support that is due to them. The Aid and Attendance Improved Pension Benefit gives veterans the opportunity to protect their life savings from being depleted by skyrocketing medical costs, the cost of assisted living, in home care, or nursing home care.
The law firm of Sean Patrick Cox, Attorney & Counselor at Law, helps veterans understand and obtain the benefits they deserve. Attorney Sean Patrick Cox is a professional member of the Veterans Assistance Association, an organization dedicated to helping veterans secure the Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefit. He is also an accredited attorney with the Veterans Administration (VA) with a 100 percent success rate in achieving benefits for clients in Michigan and Florida. Our law firm concentrates our legal resources on the Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance Improved Pension Benefit. Sadly, 85% of all veterans benefits applications filed without the assistance of an attorney are denied by the Veterans Administration.
The Aid and Attendance Improved Pension Benefit
This benefit provides tax-free financial support for wartime veterans and their surviving spouses or widows from the Veterans Administration. The specific benefit amount is currently as follows:
- Two married veterans can receive $2,540 per month
- A married veteran can receive $1,949 per month
- A single veteran can receive $1,644 per month
- A surviving spouse/widow of a veteran can receive $1,056 per month
To qualify for this benefit, a veteran must have served at least 90 days active duty, with one of those days during a war. Also, the applicant must need assistance with at least one of the daily activities of living such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, assistance with medications, assistance with driving and assistance with walking. The veteran must also meet specific income and asset requirement levels to qualify for the benefit, and we can use our specialized estate planning strategies to help veterans satisfy these requirements.
Keeping Veterans at Home
The Aid and Attendance Improved Pension can be used to pay a family member to care for the veteran at home, or to pay for the services of a professional in home care provider service. Veterans looking to live in an assisted living setting can use this tax free monthly pension to pay for the cost of an assisted living facility. The benefit can also be used to pay for the cost of a nursing home as well.
