Helping Veterans Get the Most for Their Service

Military veterans and their spouses often miss out on many of the benefits available to them. This may lead to difficult circumstances that could’ve been avoided. Our VA-accredited attorneys can help veterans and their families get the benefits they deserve—oftentimes after they’ve already tried and failed.

Experts in Veterans’ Protection

The veteran’s benefits process is complicated. We’ve even seen other lawyers get things wrong. AlerStallings’ VA-certified attorneys can help you understand eligibility and application requirements. We can ensure everything is done right to prevent delays and violations and ensure veterans get complete assistance. This can even include more than $2,000 a month for use toward nursing home, assisted living, or home care services and support.

Know Your Benefits, Get Support

Many veterans miss out on certain benefits because they aren’t aware they exist. We not only help you understand what’s available and what you’re eligible for, we also help you ask and answer the right questions to ensure you get what you need today and tomorrow. Ask yourself the following questions:

What benefits are you receiving?

Have you applied for additional benefits?

Have you applied since the rules changed in 2018?

Are you familiar with the VA Aid & Attendance benefits?

Have you been denied benefits?

Did you know your child can receive money for being a caregiver?

Did you know that even if you tried and failed, you may be able to receive benefits.

The Road to 
Protected Assets

Once you’re getting all the benefits you deserve, it’s important to protect those assets for yourself and your family.

Your custom plan might include the following:

Power of Attorney

Give your spouse or other trusted person the ability to make decisions for you and your children if you can’t.

Updated Will

If your children are over 18, it’s important to make sure your will considers all the changes that may have occurred since you originally created the document

Asset Protection Trust

This document can help you protect assets, ensure they’re managed properly, and that they go to the right place

We Make the System
Work for You

Just like many veterans don’t get all the benefits they deserve, many don’t keep their estate plans up-to-date. And an old plan could end up costing your family time, stress, and money.

A customized plan can help you:

lock

Preserve assets

Give your family the assurance that comes with knowing creditors won’t seize your estate after you’re gone

shield

Avoid probate

Be sure your family doesn’t have to deal with the stress or costs that come with making sure your estate goes where you want it to

hands

Reduce tax payments

Create a plan that helps make sure more of their estate goes to you than to taxes
