If you are a veteran or the surviving spouse of a veteran, from World War II, the Korean Conflict, or the Vietnam War and if you are a resident of Rittenhouse Senior Living, you may qualify for the Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefit.

This is one of the lesser known benefits that people who work with senior citizens call a well-kept secret.” If a veteran, or surviving spouse, qualifies he or she may receive an amount up to $1,949 per month, but actual benefit amount is determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

On Nov. 11, Jeff McBride, who is a member of the American Association for Wartime Veterans, will present a free seminar at Rittenhouse Senior Living to veterans and members of their family at 4 p.m. McBride will discuss the Aid and Attendance Benefit and he will answer questions.

The American Association for Wartime Veterans was founded in 2002 to assist veterans and their families with the Aid and Attendance Benefit. The goal is to educate 1 million veterans and surviving spouses by the end of 2013.

So far, a quarter of a million veterans, surviving spouses and family members have been educated about the benefit. More than $110 million dollars collectively has been paid out through Veterans First Communities, like Rittenhouse Senior Living.

Rittenhouse Senior Living is located at 1300 Vale Park Road, Valparaiso. For more information or to register for the seminar, contact Judy Cramer of Rittenhouse Senior Living at 219-531-2484. Tours of the facility are available.

The Rittenhouse Senior Living of Portage, located at 6235 Sterling Creek Road, will host the same event on Nov. 16 at 2 p.m. Refreshments will be served. For more information or to RSVP, call 219-764-2900.
