Sometimes searching the internet can offer a wealth of overwhelming information. This is especially true when it comes to exploring veterans benefits, particularly the Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension.

Many veterans are reaching a time in their lives where they can benefit greatly from the assistance provided by a senior living community. It’s important to know how these benefits can make assisted living a more affordable option.

Below we have created an infographic to help provide an introduction to the VA Aid & Attendance Pension. It offers a breakdown of the initial information veterans, their spouses and their caregivers need to know. To investigate these benefits further, we recommend contacting a local VA representative and/or a local attorney to help you navigate the application process.
