MEREDITH — The Golden View Community invites the public to attend a  free seminar on VA pensions on Friday, September 13 at 1 p.m.

A representative from The Office of Veteran Services will be on-site to talk about the Veterans Pension Benefits. The Office of Veteran Services works with veterans and their families to assist in obtaining those benefits to which they are entitled. Benefits are paid to eligible veteran households in addition to their monthly pension to cover the cost of home care, assisted living or nursing home care. The income is paid in addition to all other household income to reimburse the family for their long term care medical costs.

The presentation will also focus on:
• The requirements to obtain Aid and Attendance benefit (pension program)
• An overview of the process and documents needed
• Death pension benefits for surviving spouse
• VA burial benefits
• How and where to apply.

The Office of Veteran Services will also be available to answer specific questions following the presentation. This presentation is open to the public free of charge through Golden View's Community Benefit Program. RSVP for the presentation at 279-8111.
