If you or your spouse are a veteran who served at least 90 days active service, of which one day was during wartime (World War II, Korea, Vietnam, or Gulf War), you may be eligible for veteran benefits of up to $2,120.00 per month to help pay medical expenses. If you are a surviving spouse of a veteran you may be eligible for benefits of up to $1,149.50 per month. (Rates effective 12/1/2014 and updated annually)
These benefits do not require you be in a nursing home. In fact, they not only help pay for care in your home or assisted living facility, but also pay for medical supplies including Q-Tips, rubbing alcohol, and even prescriptions. Only an accredited attorney can apply for benefits for you. Ascend Law can provide education and assistance to qualify for veterans aid and attendance benefits.
