Veteran’s Planning

Aler Stallings

Need help paying for long term care costs? If so, you may be eligible for thousands a month. Even if you've tried and failed, our VA-accredited attorneys can get you through the red tape and have you receiving VA benefits. For help getting approved, stop by a seminar or schedule a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation.

Aid & Attendance Pension

“Are you eligible for the Special VA Pension?”

This monthly pension can be used for nursing home, assisted living, and even home care services and support. Up to $2,000 every month. Never heard of it? Well, you’re not alone. Most veterans haven’t. Even worse, some were mistakenly told they weren’t eligible. Sure, there are health, financial, and service requirements, but we have specialized tools and strategies to make sure you are eligible before you apply. So having “too many assets” should not be a barrier to obtaining the benefits you earned for serving your country. For help with receiving VA benefits, call us to schedule a complimentary 15 minute telephone consultation.

VA Application

“How do you apply?”

First, you or your spouse must determine whether you’re eligible. There are confusing health, service, and financial requirements. Then, you mail your application to a mysterious, far away land known as the Veteran Affair’s office in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Then you have to wait—sometimes just to be told that you need to find missing documentation that you have already sent to the VA office. Our VA-accredited attorneys know the process and have custom software that makes sure all our applications are accurate and complete before we submit them. For help getting the application approved, call us to schedule a complimentary 15 minute telephone consultation.

Family Caregivers

“Can your child receive money for being a caregiver?”

In many cases, yes. The Aid & Attendance program allows for your child to be your caregiver. That means the VA will pay your child up to $2000 each month for providing you care and support. We understand that family caregivers often provide their services and time free of charge. But this program allows them to be compensated all for their hard work. However, to make sure that your child is eligible, you must be certain the proper documentation is in place. Having the wrong paperwork, or NO paperwork, on file can cause unforeseen tax issues and future benefit eligibility problems. Our team can make sure that the correct paperwork is in place for child to receive these benefits. For help getting your child compensated for his or her efforts, call us to schedule a complimentary 15 minute telephone consultation.

Other VA Programs

“What programs does the VA offer?”

Veterans Affairs offers a variety of programs that include pension assistance programs, long-term care and medical services, retirement facilities, and burial benefits. These programs have different eligibility requirements that depend on your service, health, financial situation, and marital status. Be careful. Submitting an application on your own that has incomplete or incorrect information could result in significant delays or make you ineligible for that program. It is always best to consult with a VA-accredited attorney before submitting an application. To learn more about these programs, call us to schedule a complimentary 15 minute telephone consultation.
