Do You Know Which Benefits That You’re Missing Out On?

With over 20 million former military service members across the United States, it comes as a shock to many that the benefits they’re entitled to aren’t readily available. For veterans, it’s hardly surprising—the process behind acquiring benefits for improving quality of life can be an extremely convoluted, confusing process that often offers more questions than answers. Veterans care, including VA Aid and Attendance Benefits might seem like it’s hard to come by, but that’s just because you haven’t worked with AVCC yet. We offer clear, concise support that makes sense for your situation.

What is Aid and Attendance?

The Aid and Attendance Pension helps low-income veterans or their surviving spouses who struggle with activities of daily living. Aid and Attendance helps pay for assistance with: bathing, dressing, meal preparation, medication reminders and transportation. Unfortunately many who would qualify, put themselves at risk and go without help and end up in nursing homes. Some rely on family or friends to help out instead of using their VA pension to get the assistance they need.

So Why Don’t They Consider the Aid and Attendance Benefit?

While the pension benefit has been around for plenty of time (more than 60 years), not a lot of veterans are aware of it, let alone how it actually works and how they should go about attaining it. According to a VA focus group, eligible nonparticipating veterans, spouses, and caregivers are unaware of the program because they have not received any communication from the VA about it. The VA’s focus groups also revealed that VA pension enrollees reported needing help with the application process. The same study also found fifty-one percent of all veteran pensioners report having been eligible for VA pension for an average of 11 years before they applied.
