Date:4/1/2009

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- As the economic crisis deepens, SilverCensus.com Inc. (http://www.silvercensus.com), a national web site for caregivers, senior citizens, and healthcare professionals, announced today that it is urging American Veterans to investigate and take advantage of a little-known entitlement from the Veterans Administration called "Aid and Attendance." http://www.silvercensus.com/index.php/articles/veterans-application-for-compensation-andor-pension Silver Census is providing invaluable educational tips to better understand this program and show eligible veterans how to apply so they can get thousands of dollars each year in benefits for assisted living care, nursing home fees and certain in-home medical expenses.

"The 'Aid and Attendance' entitlement is one of the VA's best kept secrets. http://www.silvercensus.com/index.php/blogs Silver Census has delved into this entitlement to better provide answers to more than two dozen viewers' questions about understanding VA benefits, including how to determine if a veteran qualifies, which experts to hire for completing the application process, and the option of downloading the forms themselves," http://www.silvercensus.com/index.php/understanding-veteran-benefits said Christine Boyd, Silver Census' Consumer Affairs Advocate.

"Consumers need to be aware that Veterans as well as certain widows or widowers are also entitled to non-service connected benefits if they meet certain conditions," she said. "Our web pages explain the program carefully so viewers can know whether or not they qualify and what benefits are available." http://www.silvercensus.com/index.php/articles/veterans-application-for-compensation-andor-pension Boyd also noted veterans must meet certain financial and medical requirements to qualify for the monthly pension benefits. Those who qualify may currently receive up to $1,644 per month, or $19,736 annually, toward assisted living nursing home or in-home care. For veterans with spouses, benefits can reach $23,396 annually, and spouses of deceased veterans may be eligible for annual benefits of up to $12,681.

At Arden Courts Alzheimer's Assisted Living, which operates 10 facilities throughout Florida, http://www.silvercensus.com/index.php/arden-courts-page "the staff always asks potential residents if they had served in the military and if so we tell them they may be eligible for this benefit. We encourage them to contact their local VA office and most people tend to be eligible. Our move-in packet also includes information about the entitlement," http://www.silvercensus.com/index.php/articles/receiving-veterans-benefits-for-assisted-living-care said Ann Jacobs, Manager Market Development.

"We encourage all veterans and their families to plan accordingly and learn more about the 'Aid and Attendance' benefit http://www.silvercensus.com/index.php/articles/veterans-application-for-compensation-andor-pension under the statutes governing Veterans' benefits located within Title 38 of the U.S. Code so they can receive the benefits they've earned and deserve for good healthcare," said Boyd.
