PORTAGE | According to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, about a quarter of the nation's population – approximately 70 million people – are potentially eligible for VA benefits and services because they are veterans, family members or survivors of veterans.

The VA Aid and Attendance Pension benefit, one of the many benefits available through the VA, offers eligible veterans or their surviving spouses a significant monthly pension, ranging from $1,113 to $2,054 per month tax-free. To be eligible, veterans must have served 90 consecutive days or more with at least one day during a wartime period (World War II, Korea, etc) and meet a few medical and financial eligibility criteria.

As part of our on-going commitment to making eldercare more affordable, we are working to educate the local community about the availability of Aid & Attendance benefits. During our workshop, we will be reviewing the eligibility criteria and show how thousands of families, EVEN IN CASES OF HIGHER NET WORTH, have become eligible for this benefit helping to offset the cost of the care being provided.

Rittenhouse Senior Living of Portage is hosting this educational workshop about VA benefits on May 14, 2013 at 6:00p.m. The event will take place at our community, which is located at 6235 Sterling Creek Road, Portage. The workshop is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Please call 219-764-2900 to register – and if you know someone else who could benefit from this information, please bring him or her along. If you are unable to attend the workshop, please visit www.veteransfinancial.com for more information about the benefit, or email at info@veteransfinancial.com.
