Happy Veterans Day!

Today is Veterans Day and it’s an opportunity for all of us to celebrate and      honor the bravery and sacrifice of all U.S. Veterans.  Make sure to take a moment to thank those who have served our country.

How can you help a Veteran or a Veteran’s family?

If you know a Veteran or surviving spouse of a veteran who is facing the need for in-home health care, assisted living, or nursing home care, let them know about an important benefit available to Veterans to help pay for these costs.  At Wiggen Law Group we assist Veterans and surviving spouses of Veterans with eligibility for the Improved Pension/Aid & Attendance benefit.
