The Home Instead Senior Care office covering Clermont and Brown counties has partnered with US Veteran Resources, a non-profit marketing group to help qualified veterans and their surviving spouses receive financial assistance for all or part of their home care needs.
Through our partnership with US Veteran Resources, Home Instead Senior Care can assist families who use our services to submit for Aid & Attendance Pension benefits and to remain in compliance for the annual VA audits.
ABOUT THE AID & ATTENDANCE PENSION BENEFIT
The Aid & Attendance pension Benefit is a provision of the VA disability Program through the U.S. Veteran's Administration.
Wartime veterans and their surviving spouses with limited incomes, who are totally and permanently disabled for reasons not traceable to their service, may be eligible to receive compensation under the NCS (non-service connected) VA disability program.
The veteran must have served 90 days or more of active duty with at least 1 day during a stated period of wartime. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard are eligible. Merchant Marines (non Great Lakes), Air Transport Command contracted airline civilian employees, Wake Island defenders from Guam or were civilian employees of Pacific naval air bases and civilian personnel assigned to OSS secret intelligence may also be eligible. National Guard are not eligible unless called to active duty (90 days). Qualifying time of service: WWII (12/7/41 - 12/31/46); Korea (6/27/50 - 1/31/55); Vietnam (8/5/64 - 5/7/75).
Claimant has a medically documented diagnosis or condition (dementia, Alzheimer's severe arthritis, Parkinson's, diabetes, stroke, paralysis, osteoporosis, blindness, etc.) that requires regular assistance with their ADLs & IADLs - dressing, bathing, grooming, meal preparation, housekeeping, laundry, transfer from chair or bed, incontinence, medication management, assistance with ambulation (cane, crutches, walker, wheelchair). They must have a physician report that stipulates that they need assistance with their ADLs to maintain a quality of life and the aid and attendance of another to protect them from the hazards or dangers incident to their daily environment without which the veteran would require hospital, nursing home or other institutional care.
Contact us for current information regarding asset and income limitations and qualifying expenses to offset gross income.
Staying in compliance is CRITICAL. If a veteran loses the pension they cannot get it back.
Spending $.01 less than the pension on the contracted cost of home care without adequate qualified un-reimbursed expenses will result in the veteran being out of compliance on the pension.
