For many veterans living in North Carolina, the rising costs of assisted living or home health care can be staggering. The good news is that there is a little-known VA benefit that can help you get the care you need without using up all of your hard-earned savings.
If you or your spouse is an honorably discharged veteran who served at least one day during a period of wartime, and you are in an assisted living facility or spending several hundred dollars a month or more on the cost of your health care, then you may qualify for benefits under the VA Aid and Attendance Program. Moreover, if you have a service connected disability, there may be additional benefits available to you as well. This Resource Center is here to help North Carolina veterans find and get the benefits they are entitled to.
Some of these programs (in particular Aid and Attendance) have income and assets restrictions. To maximize your eligibility, there may be steps to take before you apply. Get the right advice.
