What Are the Benefits?

"I just wanted to send you a note to comment on the outstanding service I have received from the entire team at The Center for Elder Veterans Rights. As you know, I have a working knowledge of the VA process. However, I sought your help with the process for my aunt and uncle. I could not have made a better decision to have you all guide me through. Every staff member that has assisted me, through phone calls and emails, has been so pleasant, professional and expedient, and I am so grateful for their help. Kudos to your attorney, and the team for such thoughtful assistance. Rest assured, I will be referring families to you with confidence."

Title 38 of the United States Code authorizes two disability programs for Veterans, their dependents and un-remarried surviving spouses: Compensation and Pension.  Compensation is awarded to veterans whose disability is a direct result of their active duty military service.  Pension furnishes a guaranteed monthly income. The Pension benefit is often mistakenly referred to as “Aid and Attendance.”  Each program is targeted towards the needs of different groups of Veterans and their families.  Please see detailed information on each by clicking the links below.
