Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefits: An Attorney's Guide to Planning and Filing for Aid and Attendance Benefits Seminar Materials


The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that millions of wartime veterans and their spouses may be eligible for special monthly pension benefits (commonly known as “Aid and Attendance”) after they are 65, are permanently disabled and unable to work, are homebound, or need the regular aid and attendance of another person on a regular basis.

Learn the steps needed to obtain eligibility for your senior clients, including the VA eligibility requirements, the asset limitation test, income calculations, and possible problems to be aware of before and after filing an application. Learn how you can help your clients become eligible for this significant benefit.

This comprehensive, stand-alone publication is direct from a January 2013 seminar. It is available as a searchable PDF via download. Click here for more information on electronic books.
