As a veteran, you should be proud of the fact that you served in the Armed Forces. It goes without saying that everyone else appreciates your devotion to the country.
As you move on in life, it’s important to understand the many veteran’s benefits that are available to you.
Note: if you’re the surviving spouse or dependent of one, you may also have access to benefits.
Common Types of Veteran’s Benefits
Upon discharge, you probably sat down with someone to talk about the many benefits programs that are available to you. However, you may not remember all of them. Not to mention the fact that some may have been overlooked.
Here are some of the many types of veteran’s benefits you may be eligible for:
- Health care: You may qualify for health care for the rest of your life. Your family, including your spouse and children, may also qualify for coverage.
- Disability benefits: If you incurred an injury or medical condition during active duty, you may be in line to receive tax-free monthly benefits.
- Home loans: When buying a home, veterans often have access to low-interest loans. This can save you thousands of dollars.
- Education benefits: For example, you may be interested in continuing education as a means of transitioning into a new field. You may be eligible for free or reduced-cost education.
Veterans Aid & Attendance (VA & A)
The Veterans Aid & Attendance program is also worth your consideration.
It’s an extension of the VA pension program, with additional help designated for veterans who require assistance with daily tasks, ranging from cooking to bathing and everything in between.
Veterans should have a clear understanding of all the benefits they qualify for. You don’t want to miss out on anything that’s owed to you.
