If you or your loved one is a wartime veteran, there is a little known pension benefit that may be available. This benefit was earned by wartime veterans under the following circumstances:
- You served for 90 days or more in active duty service;
- You were discharged for service under other than dishonorable conditions;
- You meet certain income and net worth guidelines; and
- You are 65 years or older or have a permanent and total non-service-connected disability, or in a nursing home, or receiving Social Security Disability Benefits.
The pension benefit is not only a monetary benefit, it also provides an additional Aid and Attendance benefit, if necessary. This could include coverage for in-home nursing care and care facilities. For additional information you can watch this video from the VA.
