Veterans Benefits

Are you or a loved one a wartime veteran or the surviving spouse of a wartime veteran? Let experts at Simasko Law be your guide to the benefits that may be available to you.

Veterans benefits include any war veteran with 90 days of active duty, with at least one day served during wartime. A surviving spouse of a wartime veteran may be eligible if married to the veteran at the time of his/her death.

The Department of Veteran Affairs offers veterans or the surviving spouse of a veteran who qualify for benefits up to $25,000 annually to help pay for long term care, including care in the home and in assisted living facilities.

The Improved Pension Aid & Attendance applies to veterans and surviving spouses who require the regular attendance of another person to assist them in activities of daily living (i.e., bathing, dressing, meal preparation, medication monitoring). For more information on this subject, visit FAQs.
