Unique Issues For Widows Of Wartime Veterans

The widows of wartime veterans must come to understand that routine estate planning does not provide them with the asset protection or the financial assistance that they could be receiving. The usual revocable trust, for instance, is not the choice they should be making.

Instead, the widows of wartime veterans should be consulting with us at The Elder and Disability Law Firm, APC, to learn about veterans aid and attendance benefits. Our clients can rely on us confidently, knowing we do it well.

What Are A Widow's Benefits?

Widows frequently do not understand that their spouses have already earned this benefit by virtue of them having served our country during wartime. The amounts available are substantial, and they are eligible for up to $1,112 per month. This is how our country wishes to repay them now.

We help widows from the application process all the way to the end when they get their benefits. Further, we ensure that whatever estate plan widows do have in place, the plan does not make it impossible for them to receive their veterans aid and attendance benefits.

Our lawyers have assisted wartime veterans widows with the complicated rules and regulations involved in making a successful application for veterans aid and attendance benefits. We have seen widows and families use these benefits to alleviate the financial stress caused by any number of issues, including:

  • Nursing home care
  • Long-term care
  • Home care
  • Senior retirement living
  • Board and care
  • Assisted living
