Veterans Benefits in Maryland: Help is Available

Veterans Benefits  in Maryland:  Help is Available

Data from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs shows that veterans represented by accredited organizations receive significantly greater disability benefits than their non-represented counterparts.

The Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs Service and Benefits Program provides assistance in obtaining benefits for veterans and their eligible dependents. Charlotte Hall Veterans Home has an Accredited Veterans Service Officer located on-site to provide assistance. 

A Veterans Service Officer can help you review military discharge documents, DD214’s, and individual circumstances of service to provide the best possible assistance and benefits you or your loved one may qualify for. A Service Officer will review eligibility through the Veterans Health Administration, the Veterans Benefits Administration, the National Cemeteries Administration, and other Maryland programs designed to assist veterans. 

At Charlotte Hall Veterans Home, the Service Officer will also assist with developing, preparing, submitting, and tracking disability compensation/pension claims to the Veterans Benefits Administration.  

Benefits that may apply to our residents include:

• Disability Compensation

• Veterans Pension

• Veterans Pension with Aid & Attendance

• Dependency and Indemnity Compensation

• Survivors Pension

• Adapted Housing grants

• Service-Disabled Veterans’ Insurance, and 

• Veterans’ Mortgage Life Insurance.

In addition, If you are a veteran with 70 percent or greater service-connected disability, you may be entitled to the full cost of nursing home care. 

Don’t miss out on benefits that you or a loved one may be eligible to receive. Let a qualified Veterans Service Officer help you and your family prepare for long-term care. By ensuring that you receive the maximum benefits available, these Officers can help your family avoid unnecessary financial strain when paying for costly long-term care.
