A Little-Known TAX-FREE Monthly Pension

Congress provides a little-known TAX-FREE Special Monthly Pension for Veterans and their Surviving Spouses to help pay for the costs of long-term care commonly known as VA Pension with Aid and Attendance. This benefit is available to Veterans who served  during wartime.  However, certain medical, income, and net worth criteria must be met first.  The Jurist Law Group specializes in helping Senior Veterans and their Surviving Spouses get this very important financial benefit.

What is VA Pension with Aid and Attendance?

VA Pension with Aid and Attendance is a pension for wartime veterans and their surviving spouses. The wartime periods for the seniors I’m working with primarily include World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The Gulf War, which is still going on, also qualifies as a wartime period, but those are younger folks that I don’t typically see in my practice. Read more
