The Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension benefit provides up to $1,704/month for wartime veterans, up to $1,095/month for surviving spouses and up to $2,020/month for a married veteran.
“Last spring we held three workshops to overflow audiences which show that there is a real need in our community for this information,” said Mary Granata, director of sales for Oakwood Common. “The workshops are free and help people learn about valuable resources and funds that may be available to them.”
Beth Marshall and Dwight Cloutier from the Veteran Support Center will conduct the workshop presentations. Representatives from Oakwood’s Senior Care Solutions will also participate, including how this benefit can apply to home care.
Attendees will receive information about how to qualify and complete the VA forms at absolutely no cost.
