Comprehensive VA Benefit Services in Spokane, Washington
Many of the veterans who served our country are suffering from chronic health problems. Sadly, millions of these veterans aren’t taking advantage of the extensive benefits available to them. In addition to helping offset medical costs, VA benefits can also ensure access to quality health care.
There is a special pension benefit available to veterans and spouses of veterans who have passed away. The Aid and Attendance Pension Benefit is a monthly cash benefit that is paid out for the lifetime of the veteran or their surviving spouse.
In order to qualify for the Aid and Attendance Pension Benefit, the veteran must have served for at least 90-consecutive days, received a better than dishonourable discharge, served a minimum of one active duty day within a war period, and must require assistance with activities of daily living. With the help of a VA-accredited lawyer, the veteran or surviving spouse may qualify for these benefits and preserve assets.
