Many veterans remain unaware of benefits available to older veterans and their spouses. In fact, considerable misinformation exists surrounding the hard earned benefits veterans may apply for in their “golden years” or sometimes sooner if necessary. So, it’s important to consult with an experienced elder care attorney that specializes in Michigan Veterans Benefits.

Requirements For Veterans Benefits
Some veterans falsely assume they do not qualify for elder care benefits, since they were not wounded, or disabled while serving their country. This is not true. For example, there are Aid and Attendance benefits in place for wartime veterans and their spouses to assist with many costs associated with long term care as one ages. These costs include monthly financial help for assisted living facilities, nursing homes, home health care, etc. Thus, it’s important to make an appointment with an attorney that specializes in Michigan Veterans Benefits to check a veteran’s eligibility.
