Who can qualify to receive $13,836 to $25,524 per year tax-free?
WISCONSIN RAPIDS — According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, about a quarter of the nation’s population — approximately 70 million people — are potentially eligible for VA benefits and services because they are veterans, family members or survivors of veterans.
The VA Aid and Attendance Pension benefit, one of the many benefits available through the VA, offers eligible veterans or surviving spouses a significant monthly pension, ranging from
$1,153 to $2,127 per month tax-free. To be eligible, veterans must have served 90 consecutive days or more with at least one day during a wartime period (World War II, Korea, etc.) and meet a few medical and financial eligibility criteria.
As part of our ongoing commitment to making eldercare more affordable, we are working to educate the local community about the availability of Aid & Attendance benefits. During our workshop, we will review the eligibility criteria and show how thousands of families, EVEN IN CASES OF HIGHER NET WORTH, have become eligible for the benefit, helping to offset the cost of care being provided.
Hilltop Grand Village is hosting this educational workshop about VA benefits on February 7, 2018 at 1:30 PM. The event will take place at our community, which is located at 1400 24th St. S., Wisconsin Rapids (enter by Home Depot). The workshop is free and open to the public. Please call 715-423-7400 to register — and if you know someone else who could benefit from this information, please bring him or her along.
