Veteran Benefits in Sunrise FL
In 1952 Congress passed Title 38 of the United States Code, creating what we now call the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and authorizing benefits for veterans. One of these benefits is the Non-Service Connected Pension with “Aid & Attendance.”
Even though the pension has been around for 60 years, very few people know about it or understand how it works. Our affiliate partner at our Non-Medical Home Care Agency in Sunrise, Florida has 11 years’ experience successfully helping veteran families apply for and receive the pension to pay for home care. We can help your clients, too.
