Overview

This program will provide a discussion of the Department of Veterans Affairs' Veteran and Surviving Spouse Pension Programs. Both are income-based, unlike the VA disability compensation program. If a veteran or surviving spouse meets the maximum income, duty, and status requirements (e.g., age 65, nursing home resident), then VA benefits are available. This program, taught by veteran and attorney Tom Kniffen, will review the formula used to calculate a veteran's or spouse's qualifications in order to provide effective legal representation for them.



Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the requirements for a veteran or surviving spouse to receive pension benefits

  2. Examine the formula used to calculate a veteran's or spouse's qualifications for pension benefits

  3. Identify how to effectively represent a veteran or surviving spouse seeking pension benefits
