Attention veterans & surviving spouses

Did you know you may be eligible for a VA pension or other VA benefit?

If you are a veteran who served at least 90 days in the military, one of which was during a time of war:

- You do not have to have a service-connected disability.
- You do not have to have retired from the milltary.
- You do not have to have been overseas or seen combat.

You simply have to meet the income, net worth and service time criteria, and either be disabled ~ 65 or older. And surviving spouses may be eligible based on their husband's (or wife's) prior service.

Brethren Retirement Community of Greenville, OH is sponsoring a free seminar by the American Veterans Institute, which will focus on a variety of Veteran's issues including the VA Improved Pension program.

If you or a loved one is a veteran who served in one of these time frames:

- World War II: December 7, 1941 through December 31, 1946
- Korean War: June 27, 1950 through January 31, 1955
- Vietnam War: August 5, 1964 (February 28, 1961, for veterans who served “in country" before August 5, 1964), through May 7, 1975
- Gulf War: August 2, 1990, through a date to be determined.

...then you may be eligible for this little-known benefit that can pay a married veteran up to $22, 113 per year, a single veteran up to$18,654 per year. or a surviving spouse up to $1 1,985 per year.

The Community is Encouraged to Attend!

This FREE Seminar will be held on April 27, 2009 6-8 p.m. at the
Brethren Retirement Community, 750 Chestnut Street, Greenville, Oh
in the Brick Room. Resources and information will be provided.
Presenters include VA Improved Pension specialists, a 30-year
