Are You Utilizing All Available VA Benefits?

The men and women who have bravely served our country have made great sacrifices, but often face lifelong medical and financial challenges as a result. This is one reason why veterans' benefits (in all forms) are so important.

If you are a veteran, you may be receiving a pension or disability benefits, but may not know about options for additional assistance as you age. At Campbell & Smith Law, LLC, we want to discuss these options with you and ensure that you are fully utilizing the government benefits you have earned and are entitled to receive.

VA Benefits Planning For Long-Term Care

The Veterans Administration offers a pension benefit that many vets don't know about called Aid and Attendance. This is money allocated to help you or a surviving spouse pay for care needed to perform everyday tasks (bathing, dressing, etc.). This could include care received in your home or a nursing home. In most cases, this benefit will cover the difference between your income and the Maximum Annual Pension Rate.

You may also be able to protect your VA pension benefits through the creation of a VA asset protection trust. As with Medicaid planning, there are some tradeoffs involved in creating a trust, so it is best to discuss all of your options with an experienced lawyer.

Let Us Help You Utilize All Of Your Resources

As a veteran, you might have access to a variety of financial aid sources, including VA pension benefits, disability benefits, Medicaid benefits, Social Security benefits and Supplemental Security Income benefits, just to name a few. Our attorneys can help you take full advantage of these financial assistance programs to help defray the costs of long-term care and other expenses.
