The guest speakers were Nimchie Alce, Veterans Service Officer in Ennis, accompanied by Ellsworth Huling IV, Veterans Service Officer in Waxahachie. This program was very appropriate for the NARFE group which has a significant number of prior military service members. Programs such as Veteran’s Pensions, Disability Compensation, Survivors Pension Benefits, Dependency and Indemnity Compensation, Burial Benefits, general information on Texas state benefits for disabled veterans and eligible survivors, Aid and Attendance and Housebound, and assistance with records and dealing with the VA were discussed with a question and answer session following the presentation.
Each program has eligibility requirements including disability and health status, military service history, age, income, net worth, and dependency status. The importance of providing proper records was emphasized, such as appropriate medical records, discharge or separation papers such as the DD 214, or equivalent, marriage records and birth certificates and information on income and net worth.
