My husband served 6...

My husband served 6 years in the air force as a military pilot during the Korean War. He is 84 now and needs to be living in assisted living home. He has a tremor and cannot eat well so he does not eat. He is depressed and does not want to live.

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you overseas or stateside?

Daytona Bch Fl

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?

My son has be got nowhere. They said that since he can drive, get dressed and walk, he is not disenabled enough

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

My daughter and my son have both tried to help him to no avail. They gave me permission to do the research even though I am his ex.

I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Do you have a question regarding this?

I would like to know who is the military advocate for this area.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No

I am not sure what you mean by that question...are you asking how he can file for Veterans Benefits? If so is he in Daytona?

Benefits yes. He lives in New Symina beach fl
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
NO to the call.

Thanks
He will be eligible for a "wartime pension"...if he served during wartime, there is money available to help offset the cost of care. Just a moment, I will type up some thoughts...

Thank you.

Thanks for your patience

To file for the wartime pension benefit, he should use a VSO (Veterans Services Officer). There are, literally, over 100 different organizations that perform this work. In my opinion (as a former VSO) the ONLY one you should use is your County VSO. This is a state/county employee who will have ample experience in filing these types of claims.

You can find your local County VSO here
http://floridavets.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/County-Veteran-Service-Officers.pdf

The CVSO can help him file this form:

https://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-21P-527EZ-ARE.pdf

Which is needed to obtain the pension

You should also discuss with the CVSO the VA program called "aid and attendance"...this is an additional pension that is paid to vets who need help with their daily living needs (like eating)

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
