Veterans Long-Term Care

Qualified U.S. veterans, their spouses, or surviving spouses who are in need of the aid and assistance of another person, or are housebound, may be eligible for the “Aid & Attendance and Housebound” benefit, to help pay for long-term care. It is paid directly from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (“VA”) in addition to their monthly pension received by the VA.

This is a very little-known benefit that is annually funded with billions of dollars by Congress and serves those who need financial help covering costs for in-home care, assisted living, or a nursing home.

This program may be the only lifeline available to protect those that protect us. As with any government funded program, there are qualifications for eligibility to receive this benefit.  Let us help you with this process.

Long-Term Care Planning

As we age, the need for long-term medical care oftentimes becomes a reality for many people. Concerns of cost, location, care providers, in-home, assisted, skilled, or nursing care can become a daunting challenge. Some rely on savings, pensions, social security, reverse mortgages, or family members to support this expense.

The stress associated with the need for care, and funding the cost can be alleviated with proper planning. Investment portfolios that generate income and dividends, supplemented with pensions and Social Security may be enough to cover the cost.

What could this mean for you and your family?

With this additional monetary payment, you are able to afford the care you need. This gives you the power to select the services you need as well as the provider that meets those needs. This is a dependable pension that will always be there for qualified Veterans and spouses that is paid directly from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Throughout the years, GCPA has helped and guided many veterans and their families through the application process, which can often be complex and confusing. Our goal is to facilitate this process by ensuring that all paperwork and forms submitted to the VA are completed accurately and criteria is properly met.
