Benefits

Changes in Law About Veterans in Assisted Living Units

 

If you are a war time era veteran and either you or your spouse is living in an assisted living residence, you may be eligible for benefits from the VA. This is the same benefit that one in a nursing home can apply for. The VA will need to know the cost of all medical expenses and income and assets. If eligible a veteran can receive from $1.00 up to $1644.00 for a single veteran and up to $1949.00 for a married veteran. This will depend on information that is supplied to the VA. To find out more about this benefit please call this office at 319-267-9967 and ask for information about VA Pension with Aid and Attendance.
