Despite the budget battle, the federal government has approved an increase for non-service connected benefits provided by the VA for wartime vets equal to the Social Security annual cost of living adjustment. If you are a Michigan wartime veteran, or a family member assisting a Michigan wartime veteran, it is important to understand Aid and Attendance.
This benefit is designed to provide an opportunity for an aging or disabled veteran to receive assistance to otherwise allow an individual to avoid nursing home care and, or, to age in place. The benefit can be as high as $2,000.00 per month and can be used to pay for in home care, assisted living, and, in some circumstances, senior independent living where care is provided.
If you are a wartime veteran that needs assistance or are a family member of a WWII, Korean War, or Vietnam era veteran, please call to learn more about these benefits. This benefit can be the answer to long-term care.
You may reach our offices in West Michigan and the Metro Detroit Area by dialing 1-866-529-3537 (1-866-LAW-ELDR) or receive a referral to our affiliated Center for Veteran’s Planning offices in the greater Kalamazoo and Grayling areas.
