The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers a wide range of benefits including programs for veterans and surviving spouses providing compensation, pension, in-home care, payments or grants for assisted living, a retirement home, as well as health care and burial. Eligibility requirements vary, and it is not uncommon for a veteran to qualify for some benefits and not others. Some benefits are available to all honorably discharged veterans while others are limited to veterans with service-connected disabilities or those who saw wartime service. In some instances, limitations are based on assets and income.
Mary Lawrence and her staff can review individual income and assets, clarify eligibility requirements and provide advice and strategies in order to qualify for these valuable benefits.
