You may be surprised to know that more than 70 million Americans are eligible for Veterans benefits and, in the next decade, the number of veterans 85 and older is expected to triple. Unfortunately, many individuals and families who are eligible for Veterans benefits do not take advantage of them. For example, millions of wartime veterans and their spouses may be eligible for special monthly pension benefits solely because they are over 65 years of age and are homebound, in assisted/supportive living, or in a nursing home.
Veterans benefits can provide significant help in paying for long-term care costs. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to get the benefits you have earned and rightly deserve.
At Sprague & Hixson LLP, we are committed to helping the veterans who have served our country, together with their loved ones, get all the assistance they are entitled to. We have extensive experience in this area of the law and can assist you and your family by explaining many difficult-to-understand aspects of long-term care and the help that is available.
If you are struggling to provide dignified long-term care for a veteran and/or their spouse, we can help you understand all your options and stretch your life savings further by making every available resource available to you and your family.
Veterans suffer from hundreds of impairments the Veterans Administration compensates for. Many of these disabled veterans conditions are from service connected injuries, toxic exposure to chemicals, traumatic brain injuries, PTSD or other stress related disorders, or other various impairments. Fighting a VA compensation denial can get complicated quickly and you should have an attorney fighting for you!
