Secret Benefits For Veterans – The Untold Story-darren hayes

Elder-Care Are there really secret benefits for veterans? No, but the VA often makes it very difficult to easily find the benefit you need. And then, if you find the information, you have to then try and decipher the government lingo. These factors .bine to make most people believe that there really are secret benefits for veterans. Or at least secrets from the .mon everyday person! Let’s look at one of the most infamous secret benefits for veteransthe veteran disability pension benefit. It is not a retirement benefit that one normally correlates with the word pension. It is the most misunderstood benefit available from the VA. In fact, a large majority of the local and county veterans offices that are suppose to help you learn about and understand the benefit are unaware of its existence. Those that do know about the pension benefit often too easily dismiss those that inquire that they probably do not qualify. We have sampled various county veterans services offices in multiple states and have consistently received in.plete and inaccurate information in the majority of them. HERE IS WHY The veteran disability pension is an in.e qualified benefit. If the right questions are not asked, then the adjustments to in.e from qualified un-reimbursed medical expense is not applied to the in.e qualifier. For example, if a veteran has household in.e from social security, retirement pension, interest and stock dividend of $3,000 per month he/she would be told they do not qualify as their in.e is too high. Yes, this veterans total household in.e of 3,000 per month is above the veteran disability pension benefit maximum allowable amount of $1,554 ($18,654 per year). He/She therefore will not qualify. However, the in.e qualification is not on total in.e, it is on countable in.e. This is the most .mon mistake that probably prevents thousands of veterans receive the VA benefit they deserve. COUNTABLE IN.E The in.e qualification for the veterans disability pension benefit is based on having countable in.e below the maximum disability pension benefit level of $1,554 ($18,654 per year). Countable In.e is arrived at by subtracting from the total household in.e all qualified un-reimbursed medical expenses. These expenses include supplemental medical insurance premiums, long term care insurance premiums, prescription costs or co-payments, certain medical supplies like oxygen or incontintence pads, home care costs and even the cost of assisted living. Our veteran has $3,000 per month in total household in.e. Straight-up he/she does not qualify. BUT, the veteran pays $697 per month in supplemental insurance premiums and $297 per month in unreimbursed prescription costs. In addition, the veteran has a home care aid .ing in to help at a cost of $1,385 per month. The veterans total qualified expenses are $2,379 per month. The veterans countable in.e is thus $3,000 minus $2,379 = $621. With a countable in.e of $621 this veteran is eligible (from the financial qualifier only) to receive a veterans disability pension benefit of ($1,554 maximum benefit minus $621 countable in.e) $933 per month!
