A Law Firm Helping Veterans Claim Benefits For Long-Term Care
Veterans who have faithfully served their country are promised a number of benefits, including pensions and things like access to medical care through the VA. There are also additional benefits available to veterans as well, but they often go unused because vets simply haven’t heard of them. For example, Congress provides a little-known and tax-free special monthly pension for veterans and their surviving spouses to help pay for long-term care costs, commonly known as VA Pension with Aid and Attendance.
This benefit is available to Veterans who served during wartime and who meet certain medical, income, and net worth criteria. As with many government programs, applying and proving eligibility for these benefits can be frustrating and time-consuming if working alone. Thankfully, experienced and knowledgeable help is available when you contact Jurist Law Group, PLLC. Firm founder D. Kimbro Stephens has helped hundreds of senior veterans and their surviving spouses claim this very important financial benefit. We serve clients in Arkansas and throughout the United States area.
