AVA did a great job laying out the program with real expectations. I was especially impressed with the quickness of the process.

It is a lot of paperwork and it takes a good amount of time but it is all worth while for the veteran

My first contact with American Veterans Aid was on September 3, 2018. By Oct 30, 2019, we received approval for the full amount available retroactively back to October 1, 2018. They were very helpful solving several issues such the fact a 1970s fire destroyed certain military records including my father's. The VA wanted us to provide proof that a veteran already receiving a 10% disability payment really served.
The fees ended up being 40% less than quoted as we didn't need all of the services. Getting the assistance beginning October 1, justified the AVA costs the first month.
I highly recommend American Veterans Aid.

Great company and great service! Very professional and knowledgeable! Trying to navigate the VA system on our own was proving to be very frustrating and cumbersome. The expertise of American Veterans Aid allowed my dad to receive the benefit he deserved to help pay for in home care that he so desperately needed. Thank you from the whole family!

I'm very glad I hired American Veterans Aid. It was a little time consuming in the beginning (and I had most of the required documents), but once that part was over the remainder of the time was waiting. That was a difficult time, because it took 6 months to get the award (partly due to the government shut down). But definitely worth it! My mom is now in a stable environment and receiving good care. Thank you!

I was completing the process for my Uncle and American Veterans Aid made everything super easy. Just had to scan and send the documents requested and the rest was done for me.

We have had a very positive experience with AVA. We found the staff to be knowledgeable, efficient, and professional. Obviously, it is a tremendous gift for a 95 year old to be able to gain assistance for caregiving. My husband was a WWII vet and came home with a Silver Star and Purple Heart. He would be proud that something this positive is being given back although he expected nothing in return for his service.

Last year, I reconnected with a wonderful old friend of mine who works for Americans Veterans Aid. When she told me about the Aid and Attendance Benefit, it almost seemed too good to be true. But after hearing about all the people she had been able to help, I signed up. About 6 months later, my Mom started receiving the benefits (including benefits from the date the application was submitted!) that she should have been receiving for the last few decades. It's a complete life-changer for my Mom and our family. I can't say enough good things about the professionalism, knowledge, patience, help and hand-holding American Veterans Aid gave us. The value of the service is far, far, far more than what we paid. There's absolutely no way we could have ever done it without their help. I wish everyone reading this had an old friend who could talk to you about it! I know it's hard to trust something like this. It would have been hard for me, if it had not been an old friend telling me about it. But hopefully you take the leap of faith and do it. Can't tell you how happy my Mom is to get that check every month! : ))

My husband and I cannot be happier with the service we received from American Veterans Aid. My father is 93 yo and he was in the Army and fought in WWII. When it came time for my dad to move somewhere where he could receive the aid and assistance he needed, we viewed some assisted living facilities and chose the one best suited for dad and the assistance he needed. In the literature that the facility gave us to go over regarding what services they offered and activities and such there was a piece of paper in it that told us that if dad was a wartime veteran he may qualify for a little known about program that would give dad a monthly pension for his service. The Program was called Aid and Assistance, spouses of veterans also qualify, and it is a benefit from the VA to all wartime veterans. The maximum monthly payment toward the aid and assistance he needed was $1850.00/mo. We thought that would be great so we went to the web address on the piece of paper and investigated what would be required for dad to apply for this. As we were reading though the information that would be required it seemed a bit daunting. I noticed an advertisement for a company called America Veterans Aid, and clicked on that. It is a company started by an ex Marine to assist veterans and there families wade through all the forms and documents and best yet they would fill out the application, based on the information we gave them, and it was reviewed by a lawyer who is approved by the VA. It really sounded too good to be true but we called them and I can now say, it was the best call I ever made. They had never had a client be turned down for the pension, they charge a fee, but if they do not think the veteran meets the requirements the fee is returned. They patiently explained how the program worked, and what they would do too help us, which was a lot, and they came through with everything they said they would, and everything they said would happen did happen just like they said it would. We started the process in October, and the application was sent in the first week of November. AVA told us that dad qualified to get the whole monthly pension of $1850.00/month, and they had just found out that starting in January they would get a raise to $1880.00/mo. We waited patiently, and the first week of February my father and we received phone calls that dad had been approved for the whole amount each month. We were elated, it took so much finance burden off my dad. I cried seeing his face and knowing that I had helped get him this pension, but I would never have been able to do this without American Veterans Aid, They are the real heroes in this story, well them and my dad for his service to his country. There are no words to tell you how we feel about AVA. Even now they still answer our questions and make calls if they are needed, but that pension shows up in my father's bank account the first of every month, no fail. AVA really does care about our service people and they go the extra mile, I highly encourage you to let them do that for you and your family, so you can enjoy financial relief in your most vulnerable years. American Veterans Aid is help you can bank on! Sincerely, Peggy and Rick Sasser, for my father Robert E. Blank.

Ned provided us with the highest of professional treatment. He was thorough transparent and well educated on all of our questions. In the end our mother would pass away before the benefits could be secured. So we were not in a position to go forward. However Ned was the consummate professional in every respect.

Veterans Aid assisted and walked me through the process for my 94 year old mother. I made good decisions based on their recommendation and my gut feeling, My mom received benefits within 3 months after application. They were also there for her when we needed them to help increase her benefits due to a miscalculation by the VA. She not only received the higher amount but back pay as well.
