As a veteran, you have spent years defending America in both peacetime and war. You lived day-to-day, dedicating your life to your country. As you age, it is vital to consider your next steps and to plan for the future. From health to housing benefits, the Veteran’s Administration has helped with your immediate needs. What about retirement?

No matter what your age is, you can start planning today to secure your comfort and peace of mind in the future. Remember to consider where you would like to spend your retirement years. The continuing care retirement communities at Wesley Enhanced Living are a great choice! Our team understands the needs of seniors from all walks of life. We provide a safe and affordable place to meet new friends, learn new skills, and enjoy living your way.

Essential Aspects to Consider When You Plan for Your Future

While we are not financial advisors, and you should consult a professional to get their advice and recommendations, here are a few areas you should think about when it comes to planning your future:

  1. Estate Planning is more than deciding who gets to keep your Purple Heart. It is about naming beneficiaries for the benefits you receive. You want to make sure your spouse and children are well cared for financially, so give them peace of mind when you seek out help from places like Armed Forces Benefits Network or Free Legal Clinics.
  2. Life Insurance may seem like a luxury when you work in dangerous fields such as the military, but your family needs protection just the same. Here are a few programs to look into:
  3. Investment and Financial help may be the one area where you need the most help. Here are some programs to assist you in making the right choices:
  1. VA Pension
  2. Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans
  3. Unmet Needs Financial Grants
  4. Federal Thrift Savings Plan
  5. VA Home Loan Program

The Sales Managers at all Wesley Enhanced Living communities work closely with a veterans benefit expert who can help prequalify and determine benefits eligibility.
