Benefits

If you or your spouse served in the United States Military, there are several pension benefits that you may be eligible for. It is important to be aware of what these benefits are so that you can take full advantage of them when they become necessary.

The first is called Veterans Pension.

  • This benefit provides veterans and their families with supplemental income in order to assist them in meeting financial challenges. This benefit is tax-free, and is available to wartime veterans with a low income. In order to be eligible for this benefit, a veteran must have served a minimum of 90 days in active duty. At least 1 of those 90 days must have been during a wartime period. A veteran who served after September 7, 1980, must have served 24 months, with at least one day during a wartime period.

The Second is called Survivors Pension.

  • If your spouse or parent is a deceased veteran who served during a wartime period, you may be eligible for Survivors Pension. This benefit, also known as a Death Pension, is also tax-free. It is paid out to the un-remarried spouses and children of qualified, deceased veterans.
  • The service requirements are the same as for the Veterans Pension. Additionally, the veteran must have been discharged from the military under other than dishonorable conditions. If you are applying for this benefit as a child of the veteran, you must be either under the age of 18, under the age of 23 and attending a VA-approved school, or have been disabled before you reached age 18.

We Provide Legal Protection

Arkansas veterans are entitled to special protection under the law.  Long deployments, combat injuries, and the emotional stress of combat can be life-changing for the veteran, the veteran’s spouse, and other family members. The United States government recognizes your military contribution and has created a number of benefits and other programs designed to protect and assist veterans and their families providing them with financial assistance.

One of those programs is the Veterans Aid & Attendance Program, which can help cover the cost of home health care and nursing home care for the veteran and the veteran’s spouse.
