Some Frequently Asked Questions about the Veteran’s Pension Benefit
Does every Veteran or surviving spouse receive this benefit?
Eligibility is determined based on service during a declared war period, income limitations, liquid assets and a medically documented disability by a physician. Our dedicated Veteran’s Care Managers will work closely with you to determine your eligibility.
What are the costs associated with applying for this benefit?
As a Veteran or surviving spouse, there are no costs associated with applying for the Veteran’s Financial Assistance program. We assist you in preparing your paperwork and managing your application through the VA bureaucracy at no cost to you.
What are declared periods of war?
To be eligible for the pension benefits, a veteran must have served at least 90 days with at least 1 day served during one of the following declared periods of war:
WWI April 6, 1917 through November 11, 1918
WWII December 7, 1941 through December 31, 1946

Vietnam August 5, 1964 through May 7, 1975

The veteran must have also been honorably discharged.
Do I have to go to a VA physician to be covered by the pension benefits?
No, you can continue to use your own physician. CareWorks will provide your home care services once your application is approved.
Can I apply for the VA Pension Benefits on my own?
Yes, however many veterans and their surviving spouses have experienced the frustration and lack of quick response from the Veterans Administration. This happens because the application is incomplete, does not qualify as submitted, lacks critical documentation, or has confusing and contradictory information. The application may then sit for extended periods while waiting for the required or corrected items. Or, it is just simply denied.
Our dedicated Veteran’s Care Managers have an approval rate of 95%, versus 30% for those who choose to deal directly with the VA and manage their own application.
