					Veterans Benefits Can Provide Financial Security

As you are thinking about the quality of life that you will lead as a senior citizen, you must be
pragmatic about your present-day actions.

Social Security alone is probably not going to be enough to provide you with a truly comfortable
retirement, and Medicare does not pay for everything. So, to be able to realize your ideal retirement
vision, you are going to have to engage in some intelligent long-term planning.

People who have served in the military have certain possibilities when it comes to retirement. For one,
you are entitled to a retirement pension if you serve for at least 20 years.

As a result, if you were to combine your pension with your Social Security checks, your ongoing
retirement income may be quite solid.

In addition, if you served during a time of war, you could qualify for an assisted living benefit called the
Veterans Aid & Attendance special pension. If you need assistance with your day-to-day needs at some
point in time, this benefit could provide you with quite a boost; right now single eligible veterans can
receive over $1,600 per month.

If you are a veteran or a service member on active duty, the sooner you start planning for the future
the better. Should you be interested in discussing your options with an expert, simply take a moment
to pick up the phone to arrange for a consultation with a licensed and experienced Campbell CA elder
