If you are a wartime veteran or a surviving spouse of a wartime veteran, couldn’t you use some extra help during these hard economic times? Many veterans (or their spouses), when considering Flushing House for a retirement residence, are unaware they may be eligible for a significant pension from the U.S. Veterans Administration. Find out if you are eligible by attending a special seminar on April 26 at 3:30 p.m. at Flushing House. Experts will review your benefits, explain criteria for eligibility, and show you how to apply.
“Flushing House is committed to providing vets and their families with the benefits and lifestyles they deserve,” said Robert Salant, director of community relations. “We are proud to co-sponsor this seminar with Veterans Financial, Inc., which has helped more than 25,000 families of veterans with benefits. This extra monthly income
($1,056 to $1,949) can offset the cost of living at Flushing House by 25 to 40 percent.”
The Veterans Administration and Senior Bridge are also co-sponsoring the seminar, noted Salant.
To be eligible, a veteran must have served 90 days or more, with at least one day during a wartime period (World War II, Korea, or Vietnam).
To R.S.V.P., call Joshua Lutz, activity leader, at 347-532-3010 and provide your name and phone number. The free seminar is from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Flushing House, 38-20 Bowne Street, in Flushing.
