CFPB Blog on Helping to Prevent Scams Targeted at Veterans

Dana Halvorson

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) November 8 blog written by Anthony Camilli and Erin Scheithe includes information on helping to prevent scams targeted at veterans.  In particular, it notes that CFPB is “offering a new placemat on scams targeting the Aid and Attendance benefit, part of a series of fraud and scam prevention placemats. Veterans, or surviving spouses who are eligible for a veteran’s pension, may be eligible for the Aid and Attendance benefit.  This benefit may be granted if the individual needs help with activities of daily living, is bedridden, is a patient in a nursing home, or has certain vision limitations.  For those who qualify, the Aid and Attendance benefit is added to his or her VA pension.”  If you would like to learn more about how to apply for the Aid and Attendance benefit, you can use this fact sheet
