About Those Who Help Veterans'

EldercareThe individuals on this site help veterans understand long term care benefits available through VA. This can include information on veterans health care, state veterans homes and veterans disability income benefits. These individuals place particular emphasis on Pension and Death Pension because these benefits are typically more useful for the elderly needing long term care. Pension is also known as "the aid and attendance benefit.

These individuals provide information about the aid and attendance benefit including what it is, who can qualify and what information and documentation are necessary in order to file a claim. They do no participate in any way in the application process unless that individual is accredited by VA. For all other individuals listed on this page, veteran households seeking help with filing a claim are directed to an appropriate veterans service organization or to a state or county veteran service representative or, where appropriate, they are encouraged to file a claim on their own.

Disclaimer: The individuals listed on this site are private practitioners or in some cases representatives of veterans service organizations and are not connected with the Department of Veterans Affairs. These individuals do not charge a fee for the preparation, presentation, or prosecution of a claim. Only those who are accredited attorneys or accredited representatives are involved in the processing of a claim.
