Veterans Benefits Eligibility Counseling

Don’t Let Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefits be a Well-Kept Secret! Learn if You Can Qualify for this Government Benefit

Stephanie is accredited by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to provide clients with guidance and assistance about qualifying for veteran benefits. Stephanie and her team primarily focus on assisting veterans and their spouses with becoming eligible to obtain benefits under the Aid & Attendance program, pension, as well as death benefits.  Please be very careful about working with individuals or companies that claim to be able to help you quality for VA Aid & Attendance benefits. The Veteran's Administration requires individuals or companies to be accredited in order to provide advice and guidance or, represent a veteran in a claim dispute. Additionally, under the VA rules no one including an accredited individual can charge for filing an application. There are unscrupulous people and companies that are seeking to take advantage of veterans by charging them for that service. Don’t become a victim of their financial scams!

Veteran Aid & Attendance

Benefits enable eligible veterans or their spouses to receive a monthly check that supplements their income enabling them to pay for medical products and long-term care services such as:

  • A home health aide
  • Medical supplies
  • Cost of residing in an assisted living facility

This benefit is non-service connected meaning that the veteran did not have to be injured during service in order to receive benefits under this program.

An additional incentive to qualify is that the veteran will receive full VA health care and prescription benefits!

Veteran Aid & Attendance benefits eligibility are based on numerous criteria which include:

  • Dates of Service
  • Disability
  • Income
  • Net Worth
  • Unreimbursed medical expenses

There are new VA rules effective as of October 18, 2018 relating to resources (what assets count and what does not), penalties for asset transfers, and providing clarification on unreimbursable out-of-pocket medical expenses. Don’t try to be your own advisor. When you meet with me, I will guide you through the process so you understand what needs to be done to qualify for Veterans Benefits at the earliest possible time.
