WALLA WALLA - A free seminar on veterans benefits will be held March 22 at 2 p.m. at Park Plaza retirement community, 1400 Dalles Military Road.
The seminar will shed light on the little-known Veterans Administration Aid & Attendance program, which provides eligible veterans and surviving spouses up to $1,949 per month, tax-free. The VA estimates 100,000 people are eligible, but many, especially widows of veterans, are unaware these benefits exist.
To meet eligibility veterans must have served at least 90 days with one day during a declared war and be at least 65, among other requirements.
The seminar is designed to educate veterans and families and help them navigate the application process.
The seminar is open to the public, and refreshments will be provided. To RSVP, or to learn more, call Park Plaza at 525-6513.
