Veterans Promotion

The District is home to 25,514 veterans, according to 2020 U.S. Census Bureau data. AARP is teaming up with agencies to help vets and their caregivers by offering two online sessions on Wednesday, June 15.

Participants can learn about cognitive decline and its implications, common legal matters related to advanced care planning, and survivors and burial assistance benefits.

The first session, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., will cover fiduciary services offered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and detail how veterans and their families can protect themselves.

The VA’s fiduciary program helps veterans who are unable to manage their financial affairs due to injury, disease or age. Sign up at aarp.cventevents.com/d/68qbf1.

The geriatric psychiatric team for the VA’s National Capital Region will be holding a session from 2 to 3:30 p.m. You can register at aarp.cventevents.com/d/s8qbf4.
