There are four Veterans Homes in Nebraska:
To qualify for admission, a veteran must have an honorable discharge and at least two years of residency within the state of Nebraska. The application process includes submission of current medical information and current financial information. The applicant is required to pay a co-payment, which is based upon assets and income. Application forms are available from the County Veterans Service Officer.
The Nebraska Veterans' Aid Fund (NVA) can at times help with certain items for a Lancaster County veteran or their dependents if, due to an unforeseen emergency and loss of income (that is not the result of a veteran's improper actions) there is a financial need. It is a short term assistance source. The assistance must be for:
Only current basic bills can be considered; past due bills cannot be considered. Certain factors and rules determine just what expenses this fund can help with, but we can discuss specifics when you come in to complete the application. We do not guarantee assistance.
An applicant completes an application, which lists their monthly combined household income from all sources against expenses and lists assets and net worth. If available assets are adequate to meet the family's needs, the NVA fund will allow no help. The application states the unforeseen emergency and the date it began. We then submit the application, proof of legal Nebraska residency (Nebraska legal residency proof is required), and honorable discharge documents, to the Nebraska Department of Veterans Affairs for consideration. Once the State has received the application, it takes about 1 to 2 weeks for an answer.
Please bring the following highlighted items, as your situation warrants, to our office when you come in to complete the application:

If Discharge was recorded at the Lancaster County Clerk's Office, the Discharge can be obtained from their office. If the Veteran entered the service and returned to Nebraska, we can contact the State of Nebraska Department of Veterans Affairs for the Discharge. If none of the above work, an application must be made to the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
