Individuals who serve their country by being in the military deserve all the benefits that the government provides for them. Unfortunately, numerous veterans and their spouses do not get the benefits they have earned because they are unaware of the various forms of aid and assistance available to them.
Veterans may even qualify for additional benefits if they need assistance with the activities of daily living. Veteran’s Aid & Attendance is a special monthly pension based on an individual’s income and assets. If a veteran is eligible or approved for Aid & Assistance, then he or she will receive additional income on a monthly basis to pay for health care costs. This benefit can, for example, prevent an individual from prematurely moving to a nursing home.
Our team of attorneys at Nepa & McGraw have a deep understanding of the rules and laws governing Aid & Assistance, and can develop a thorough and well-crafted plan to ensure that a veteran qualifies for benefits while sidestepping errors that could later lead to loss of assets, Medicaid ineligibility, or application denial. We can recommend legal advice and estate planning actions that can keep your assets protected now and for years to come.
We at Nepa & McGraw are committed to providing legal services to help veterans and their families obtain much-deserved and much-needed benefits that can pay for a nursing facility or for long-term care at home. Not only does veterans planning help veterans preserve more dignity and autonomy, but also peace of mind.
