At The Zimmerman Law Firm, we greatly respect what our military veterans have done for us.
Many men and women in Central Texas have served our country, Whether they served at Ft. Hood or Bagram Air Base, it is our duty to return that service to our veterans nationwide.
As veterans age, they may require long-term care services to maintain their health and well-being. However, these services can be expensive and difficult to afford, particularly for those with limited income and resources.
Fortunately, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers programs called Aid and Attendance and Housebound benefits that provide financial assistance to eligible veterans and their spouses who need help with activities of daily living.
These tax-free benefits can be used to pay for nursing care, assisted living services, and in-home caregivers, allowing veterans to receive the care they need without causing undue financial hardship.
You or your spouse might be eligible for these programs if you served at least 90 days of active duty, with at least one day served during a wartime period.
Below, you can read more about the details of veterans aid and benefits. If you have any questions, please contact us online or call (254) 848-0274.
