Aid and Attendance Seminar with Robert Hart at the Timbers of Shorewood
Date:4/13/2013

(PRWEB) April 13, 2013

Robert Hart of the American Association for Wartime Veterans (AAWV) will present a free informational seminar titled, “Aid and Attendance,” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, at The Timbers of Shorewood, 1100 N. River Rd.

Hart will explain the benefits which are available to qualifying veterans, widowed spouses or disabled adult children.

Once awarded Aid and Attendance or Housebound status, veterans may obtain as much as $1,732 a month, surviving spouses $1,113 a month, and existing couples $2,054 a month. In addition to income, they may qualify for free medications, medical equipment, incontinence supplies, glasses and hearing aids.

Hart will explain eligibility and how to initiate a claim. For example, the claimant’s physician must declare the veteran as housebound and in need of assistance from another individual which may include services offered by assisted living. Also, the veteran must have served at least 90 days active duty with one day of the 90 during a war period.

Founded in 2002, AAWV is a privately held community outreach service formed to provide information about the improved pension program to wartime veterans and surviving spouses. To date, approximately $2.6 million a month is being paid in benefits as a result of AAWV’s efforts. There is no charge for AAWV’s services.

The Timbers of Shorewood is a rental retirement community which provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Residents, whose needs may change, are able to stay in the same place and receive appropriate care.

This seminar is free and open to the public. For more information, call Shelly Goggins at 815-609-0669 or visit http://www.timbersofshorewood.com.
