Kiplinger’s recently published an article on benefits that many veterans and their families are eligible for, but may not be aware of. In addition to the Aid and Attendance pension which we have previously written about, other potential benefits include:
- Life insurance.
- Hearing aids.
- Spouse and dependent benefits (DIC).
- Health insurance.
- Directed care benefits for those who require help with daily living tasks.
- Agent Orange benefits.
- Home modification.
- Burial expenses.
It’s a shame that many veterans are unaware of these benefits. If you or a loved one is a veteran, here is a link to the article: http://www.kiplinger.com/article/retirement/T020-C000-S004-vets-don-t-miss-out-on-hidden-benefits.html
