Esther C. Wang, Elder Law Attorney Serving the Inland Empire


Esther WangI help veterans & their families understand how to obtain long term care benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Most veterans are not aware of the benefits available through veterans health care, through state veterans homes, through home renovation grants, or for two disability income programs called Compensation and Pension.

It's astounding that roughly 1/3 of all seniors can qualify for up to $2,085 a month in additional income through Pension under the right conditions. Pension is also known as the "aid and attendance benefit." Yet government statistics show only 5% of potentially eligible veterans are actually receiving the Pension benefit.

This benefit can help you pay anyone including your child for home care. It can also be used to help you pay for professional care in the home, for assisted living, or for nursing home. Imagine having an extra $2,085 a month that you didn't even know existed.
