Two out of three veterans are 50 years old or older, making it increasingly likely that programs working with older adults will also be working with older veterans. The law and aging network is well versed in general benefits and services for older adults, however, it is important to understand the specific benefits available to older veterans.
This webinar will offer a high-level, introduction to VA benefits. The webinar will introduce participants to VA pension benefits and health benefits, including:
-Non-Service Connected Pension
-Aid & Attendance
-Service Connected Disability Compensation
-Special Monthly Compensation
The webinar is intended to introduce participants to these concepts and is not intended to be a comprehensive training on advising veterans on pension and health benefits.
