Veterans Benefits

Veteran’s Aid and Attendance Benefit

Anthony Capital, LLC is proud to serve our nation’s war-time era Veterans by helping educate them about the Aid and Attendance benefit. The benefit is part of the Improved Pension program that is administered by the Department of Veteran Affairs and is available for veterans and their spouses who served active duty for at least 90 days during a congressionally appointed period of war.

How do I Qualify for the Benefit?

The VA looks at three things when approving the benefit:

  1. Service Record
  2. Income/VA Deductible Medical Expenses
  3. Assets

Many veterans don’t apply for the benefit because they think they are overqualified, or are simply unaware that the benefit exists.  Other veterans have been misinformed regarding the benefit. If you have questions, call us and let us see if we can help.
