Ms. Servaes will focus her talk on an underutilized special tax-free pension through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs that can be used to help pay for senior living. This little-known pension, ranging up to $2,295 per month, is available to qualifying veterans and veterans’ survivors.

Ms. Servaes will discuss:

  • What qualifies a veteran or the spouse of a veteran for the pension benefit
  • Maximum pension amounts
  • Planning strategies to help those who qualify
  • Required materials to get an application started
