My Husband is a WWII Vet. The Aid and Attendance Helps Vets and Surviving Spouses with Financial Assistance for Housing

I do hope that this find you well.

Diane, My husband and I live in an apartment complex. We have lived here for the last 2 yrs. Each year the rent keeps going up almost a $100 each time.

When we moved in, the rent was $775 a month.

At the time I we though it was great. It has 2 bathrooms 1 with a walk in shower, which is great for my husband who is a WW 11 vet 84yrs old and who is legally blind.
I am 66 years old and we are always on the go.

To get to the point. I have been looking into senior retirement communities.

I found some nice senior retirement communities, but financially we are unable to afford many of the them due to our fixed income.

I wanted to share that I found out there is a little known benefits program for vets that most do not know about it called Aid & Attendance Benefits.

Many vet and surviving spouses are not aware that they could be eligible to receive a significant monthly income through the VA, other than Social Security.

This program is designed to provide financial aid to vets or surviving spouses who need services for any number of daily activities. These could range from $1,644 per month or more. These benefits could cover up to 75 percent of the total cost of living.

We are just looking for the ones that do not have a waiting list, be it here or across the country, We are sure to find something that we like.`
