Details: Here are the key points about The Veterans Support Center, and how we help Veterans.
 
“The health and well-being of our country’s military shouldn’t stop when they become veterans. Veteran Support Center mission is to insure that our veterans and their service to our country is not forgotten and that their welfare is taken care of to the last day of their final resting place.” 
“Veteran Support Center” was created to help senior veterans navigate the maze of government programs such as Medicaid, Aid and Attendance and to inform them about other senior programs that are available to them on a local level. “Veteran Support Center” is a private 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is not affiliated with any government agency or organization. “Veteran Support Center” receives no tax aid from any Federal, State, or Local agencies. Our volunteers are comprised of retired veterans and other professionals that donate their time and efforts in helping our country’s senior veterans. 
Helping the Veteran… 
•          First we determine the eligibility of the Veteran. 
•          Then we determine the health and financial situation. 
•          Finally based on the Veteran’s situation, Veteran Support Center can direct the Veteran to the proper path to give the Veteran or Surviving spouse the best chance of qualifying for all benefits or pre-plan for future benefits so they will stay eligible.
