Veterans Benefits

Are You Eligible for Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefits?

Ask the Elder Law Center at Shah & Associates, P.C.

Many New Jersey veterans are aware that because of their service to our country, they are afforded benefits.  Often times, however, they are not aware of how numerous and extensive these benefits might be.  The Aid and Attendance Pension Program is one of the least known and underutilized Veterans benefits.  Veterans are not only supported for their service on a federal level, but also on the state level.  Taking full advantage of these benefits requires a knowledgeable attorney to guide you through the application and qualification process.

The Elder Law Center at Shah & Associates, P.C is honored to assist those that have served our nation by helping wartime veterans and their surviving spouses receive optimal Aid & Attendance benefits for their service.  An eligible veteran can potentially receive over $23,000 per year for assistance with medical expense and long-term care.  The eligible veteran’s widowed spouse can potentially receive over $12,500 per year.

Aid & Attendance Program

As you get older and circumstances change, your existing VA pension may not be enough to meet your needs.  That is why Veterans Affairs has made it possible for those facing difficult circumstances to apply for further pension assistance.  If qualified, veterans with Aid & Attendance receive an increase in their monthly pension to help alleviate their bills.

Benefits that you may qualify for under Aid & Attendance include:

  • Dependency, Disability and Indemnity Compensation
  • Employment Training
  • Dependency and Indemnity Compensation for Parents
  • Special Monthly Compensation
  • Survivor Benefits
  • Health Care
  • Life Insurance
  • Burial and Memorial
  • Death Pension
