To the Home Instead Senior Care® network, enhancing the lives of aging adults and their families isn’t just about providing care services. If there’s a way we can make your life a little easier, a little less stressful, a little more manageable, we’re glad to share our resources and care expertise with you.
For more than a decade our team has educated thousands of Veterans and Surviving Spouses throughout the country about the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Aid and Attendance Pension. While the application has always been lengthy, it became increasingly difficult as a result of significant changes made by the VA in October 2018. The need to simplify the process for families to learn about and apply for this valuable VA benefit became evident. Many eligible families will experience a delay in the application approval because their VA forms were completed incorrectly or they failed to send in necessary documentation. Although it is possible to retain the guidance of attorneys and other consultants who provide assistance, they come at a premium.
AidandAttendance.com has solved this problem by creating an online technology that allows users to successfully complete the VA benefit application for a reasonable membership fee. Our e-tool allows you to complete all the necessary paperwork, attach critical supporting documents, and print the complete VA application ready to be submitted directly to the Department of Veterans Affairs to claim the benefit.
How Does It Work?
This first of its kind e-tool completes the cumbersome and time-consuming VA forms for you. First, you answer easy to understand questions in your individual account. Next, you print out the completed forms and have them signed by the Veteran and/or Spouse, a physician and their senior living community or home care provider. Lastly, you send the fully completed application to the VA.
By becoming a member you gain access to the application software as well as many other valuable resources. These resources include an extensive knowledge base, suggested templates for responding to the VA, state specific Medicaid information, free funeral assistance program and our experienced customer service team.
