Veteran's Benefits And The Estate Planning Process
Veteran’s Benefits As Part Of Estate Planning
Many people who served in the military, and who are widows or children of Veterans, are eligible to receive Veteran’s Aid and Attendance Benefits. Unfortunately, these benefits are often overlooked in the Estate Planning Process.
VA Benefits have specific income, discharge status, age, dates of service, and medical condition eligibility requirements, limits on amount of assets, and there are strict guidelines as to the amount, and type of services that are covered.
We have prepared several videos that explain more about these benefits, requirements, and guidelines that you can view by clicking on the following links:What are veteran’s benefits?, What is the aid and attendance benefit program?, How do I know if I am eligible for veterans benefits?, and My husband was a veteran. Are there any benefits that I might be entitled to?.
