POV PSA: Aging Veteran’s Benefits

National Council for Aging Care’s guide on Military Veteran Benefit Options:


Here is just some of this all-important information from the Veterans Administration.

I was sent this by someone who works at the National Council for Aging Care.

I have talked with way too many Vets who think VA benefits are akin to charity, but nothing is farther from the truth. These are earned benefits and as such you are 100% entitled to use them…and you should.

Do NOT think that if you apply for, and receive, these many benefits you are taking ‘money from those who need it’, but that is not he case, the truth is that if VA benefits aren’t  used their budget gets cut and that hurts everybody in the long run.

If you are comfortable financially I urge you to still apply. If you qualify and receive monetary benefits you feel you don’t need then YOU can choose to donate it to a charity of YOUR choice.

Either way you are entitled and should apply for everything you qualify for.

For family members  of Vets – you’d be surprise how wide-ranging these benefits are.  If you even wonder if Uncle Joe might qualify…then follow up with it.  The worst that can happen finding out he doesn’t, but if you don’t ask then it is a zero chance he’ll  get the benefits.

As always a please get in touch with me at rkohberger@gmail.com if you have questions or if I can help in any way.

Best to all and thank you for your service to a grateful nation…
