Applying early is the key to long-term care benefits for veterans

Veterans in Johns Creek, Georgia, and elsewhere around the Peach State should be aware of a relatively unknown veteran benefit. It is called the Veterans Aid & Attendance pension benefit and applies to a pension-eligible veteran, his or her spouse or both.

Veterans groups concerned over AHCA language

Georgia residents who suffer from preexisting medical conditions, have limited incomes or are former members of the U.S. armed forces were likely paying close attention on May 4 when the House of Representatives voted on the latest Republican plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Lawmakers ended months of stalemate when they approved the American Health Care Act by a nail-bitingly narrow 217-213 vote, but the ayes and nays had barely been counted before partisan arguments erupted over who would benefit and who would suffer.

The Aid & Attendance Improved Pension: Applying for aid

When you're a veteran of war, you deserve to be compensated for the work you've done. If you've served the country and have been on 90 days of active duty during wartime, you're able to apply for the Aid & Attendance Improved Pension. Surviving spouses of those killed at war or after service may also apply for these benefits as a result of their loved one's service.

The value of legal guidance when seeking veterans benefits

Veterans and their families are some of the hardest working, resourceful people in the country. Considering the emotional and physical challenges they overcome on a regular basis, it can feel like there's nothing they cannot do. However, there is nothing wrong with asking for help, especially when it comes to protecting yourself, your property and your family.

Veterans: You could be missing out on benefits

As we get older, the unfortunate fact is that our needs and capabilities in terms of caring for ourselves will change. This change might be quite gradual or sudden, but as time goes by, we can require more help to do things that seem so easy today.
