In exchange for their selfless service and heroism in fighting for their country, veterans are provided with many benefits to protect their health and to help them as they age. The types of benefits you qualify for will depend upon many factors, including years of service, whether you have a service-connected disability, your age, and your income level.

What Veteran’s Benefits are You Entitled to Receive?
The VA provides many different kinds of benefits to veterans, both who are disabled due to their service as well as those who are retired and/or aging. Veterans may receive a pension for their service, but may also receive additional Aid & Attendance if they meet certain qualifying criteria such as being bedridden, in need of assistance performing daily functions, or living in a nursing facility. Veterans may also be eligible for various long-term care benefits, for geriatrics and extended care services, and for healthcare benefits.
The different types of benefits provided to veterans are intended to allow those who have served to get nursing costs covered, including costs associated with both living in a nursing home facility and getting care in the home. There are community living centers, community nursing homes, and state veteran’s homes where seniors may live for free or for lower costs than traditional private nursing facilities. There are also options for home-based primary care, home health aids, respite and hospice care, and even adult day care. Because there is such a wide range of different programs, each with its own qualifying criteria, getting personalized legal advice from Eghrari Law Firm is a smart choice for determining which benefits you are eligible to receive.
How an I Obtain The Benefits Available?
Obtaining benefits involves first determining if you qualify for particular program(s) and then completing applications and providing proof of qualification.
Eghrari Law Firm understands all of the different qualifying and admissions criteria for different types of benefits that are available to veterans. When you or your family members come to see our legal team, we can assess your health and financial situation to advise you on which programs you may be eligible to qualify for. We can then obtain the appropriate forms, complete the paperwork on your behalf, obtain the documentation necessary to provide proof of eligibility, and submit the forms and paperwork to the VA for you.
The Veteran’s Administration aims to care for those who have served, but the VA is often understaffed and unable to provide the type of personalized help veterans deserve in identifying benefits programs and completing applications for benefits. Eghrari Law Firm is your guide as you determine how you can get care covered as you age or as you address disabilities and illnesses you may develop over time.
How Can a Long Island Veterans Benefits Lawyer Help You?
