If you’re a Veteran, you’ve probably been told time and time again to go to the VA if you need help. But what happens if you don’t find everything you need through the VA? What happens if you can’t seem to align the services you need with what you’re actually eligible for? At AVCC, we understand how frustrating this process can be—with so many Veterans lamenting the fact that they leave the VA with more questions than answers, it’s about time you reached out to a provider that specializes in getting you the help you need, no strings attached. We have an intimate, nuanced knowledge of eligibility requirements, available services, and everything in between. If you feel like there are still several Veterans benefits that you’re entirely unaware of, have no fear—we’ve outlined some of the most important ones below so that you can find exactly what you’re looking for.
- Long-Term Care – It might be expensive, but long-term care is often times critical for aging Veterans. The Aid and Attendance program enables Veterans to receive money to cover the cost of nursing homes, home care services, and other important care options. Need to find an option for VA spouse benefits? VA benefits for surviving spouses include the coverage of up to $13,560 a year for long-term care costs.
- Caregiver Support – The VA offers a caregiver support program that doesn’t include monetary support but does include a free support line and a caregiver support coordinator to help navigate the broad range of benefits available.
- Death Benefits – It might seem like you’re running out of options when your spouse passes, but there are still a few unique benefits available after their passing, including the draping of a U.S. flag over the casket and the ability to request a Presidential Memorial Certificate to honor the deceased loved one’s service.
- Certification Programs – You probably already know about how you can receive credits that go toward a college degree, but the GI Bill also includes up to $2,000 to help cover the cost of certification courses or other vocational training programs.
- Transferring GI Bill Credits – If credits go unused, they can be transferred to spouses or dependents.
- Free Tax Preparation – No one enjoys tax season—why not get some help with one of the more stressful tasks that needs to be taken care of? The individuals who work in the VA offices can help you sort through the complicated tax issues that hold so many Veterans back from receiving the benefits that they deserve.
- Life Insurance – If you’re a Veteran having trouble obtaining life insurance, the Servicemembers’ and Veterans’ Group Life insurance program can help you receive up to $400,000 in life insurance. With competitive premium rates, you’ll enjoy high-quality benefits like never before.
- Mortgage Assistance – If you’re having trouble completing your mortgage payments, Veterans are eligible to receive repayment assistance through the Department of Veterans Affairs. Options include special repayment plans, loan forbearance and loan modification programs.
- VA Foreclosures – Veterans have the opportunity to search the list of VA acquired properties and purchase homes at a lower rate. Every property available qualifies for VA financing.
- American Corporate Partners – Need help finding a job? American Corporate Partners connects veterans with exceptional companies around the country to receive ongoing benefits including one-on-one mentoring and other career development services.
