My husband collects both his SSDI, LTD from his employer and his Veterans disability benefits. SSDI is a cheque every month and medicare, but as a veteran you qualify for 100% coverage, which includes all durable equipment, a mobility van grant, a substantial special adaptive housing grant, HISSA grant, for immediate adaptations for your home, CHAMPUS VA medical benefits for your family, and educational benefits for you children under the age of 27, and your wife. I am surprised that this isn't already set up for you by your PVA representative.
I don't know what we would have done with out the VA benefits. Also they will pay for your home care, even if it is your wife.
Thanks for all the info, Paulette. I will follow-up this week. I have to check with HP to see what happens to my company insurance as things go downhill.
I always told Sandy and anyone else who would listen that my 4 yrs in the service and tours in 'Nam were a waste of time. Turns out I was very wrong !
