Did you know that a war time veteran and or a surviving spouse could be eligible for an obscure and little known federal program that can assist with things like adult daycare, home care or skilled nursing care?

Only 4.7% of  eligible veterans or surviving spouses are receiving a benefit.

This program can provide the following:

  • Up to $23,000.00 for a veteran and living spouse
  • Up to $19,000.00 for a single veteran
  • Up to $ 12,000.00 for a surviving spouse

An eligible veteran must have served 90 days of active duty including 1 day during a period of war and must have been honorably discharged.

Veterans must have a qualifying disability which need not be serviced related.

A Veteran and spouse cannot have an annual net  income of more than $24,652.00 after subtracting all medical costs and expenses.

Cannot have greater than $50,000.00 to $80,000.00 of liquid assets at time of application. The VA does not have a look back period for transferred funds.
