Veterans Services - Veterans Pension and Widow Pension Benefits

To be eligible for Veteran Pension Benefits you must have served on active duty for 90 days and at least one of which must have been during a wartime era and “ under other than dishonorable” discharge. You must also be 65 years old or older or be permanently, totally disabled. These pensions are income and asset based; yet most medical expenses can offset the income/assets. If you are applying for Widow Benefits the veteran must have met the same criteria.

Veterans Services

The process of finding, applying for, receiving and maintaining veterans benefits can be confusing and frustrating. Our goal is to provide outstanding service to the veterans and their families who reside in Macomb County by maximizing the receipt of veterans benefits and eliminating or reducing the frustration and confusion that go along with the process.
