I'm sure there are many vets on here. Hopefully someone can help answer a question for me. I have a 95 year old stepdad that is a WW2 Navy vet and my mother is 88 years old. They are at a time in their lives where they need help doing everyday things. This will be the first year my stepdad won't have a garden and the house they have is a big chore for my Mother to keep clean. My brother and I are trying to get them into an assisted living apartment. The apartment is first class and is right by the town's hospital (in Va.) and my brother lives on the other side of the hospital. The paperwork about the apartment complex says that vets may qualify for financial help from the V.A. . I've been calling the V.A. for over a week and they won't return my calls. Does anyone know what it takes to qualify for financial help from the V.A.?

You will learn that the VA uses the DDD* system for processing claims for benefits.





*DELAY DENY hope you DIE before they have to give you YOUR benefits.

If they meet minimum income requirements, he may qualify for Aid and Attendance. Contact a Social worker at the VA or contact one for assistance in this matter. I've referred patients to Social Workers and the outcome has been positive.

If you have an American Legion or VFW post near you, they should have service officer(s) that can explain what benefits are available and how ot apply

^^^This. I haven't done it myself yet but my nurse at the VA highly recommended going to my local VFW. They helped her apply, and push everything through for her 90% disability.
