VA Benefits for Baby Boomers


Are You a Military Veteran? You may be Eligible


for Benefits You Knew Nothing About!

There are over 23 million military veterans in the United States today.  Only 8 million are receiving VA benefits.  There are a host of benefits that your military service may qualify you to receive to supplement your retirement income or reduce expenses.


AARP ran an excellent roundup of the benefits entitled to veterans in their May-June 2010 magazine: Giving Back to Vets by Dave Lindorff. The topics covered (along with qualifying criteria) include:

Assisted Living

Disability Compensation


In-Home Care

Nursing Home Care
Pensions for War Veterans
Prescription Drugs

If you are a Baby Boomer veteran (even for just one day in wartime!), we urge you to read this AARP article.  You may be missing out on benefits you never knew about!  For example, did you know that Vietnam veterans who suffer from any of 12 ailments (Parkinson's, certain cancers ,some types of heart disease, etc.) automatically qualify for disability compensation?!  Do yourself a favor and read Giving Back to Vets.
