Increase in VA Benefits

Finally, some good news from the federal government that will benefit Michigan residents receiving VA non-service connected pension benefits. After several years of not receiving a cost of living increase (COLA), the government has announced a 3.7% increase for benefits.

In addition to social security, this will include VA benefit payments. If you are a veteran receiving Aid and Attendance Benefits (A&A) this will result in a much needed raise to assist you with your care expenses.

The new monthly amounts are as follows:

Single Veteran: $1,703.00 Married Veteran: $2,019.00 Surviving Spouse: $1,094.00 Two Veterans: $2,630.00 Improved Pension Only: $1,338.00
The end result: If you are a wartime veteran receiving benefits expect an increase. If you are a veteran or family of a veteran looking for a way to keep your loved one at home or looking for an assisted living facility, the A&A benefit can be a life saver.

As always, if you need assistance with VA benefits, particularly A&A, please call our firm.
