Estate planning to maximize the benefits of wartime veterans
Spouses can receive the maximum benefits. If you are a wartime veteran, it is important that you understand the dfferent benefits that may be available to you.
It is possible for you to apply for a variety of different benefits about which you might be unaware. As a wartime veteran, you may be eligible for benefits to pay for long-term care, assisted living, home care, nursing home care and others. It may also be important for you to conduct estate planning to make certain that you will be eligible for Medi-Cal in the event you have to go to a nursing home.
The Veterans Administration does not view all trusts in the same way, so it is important that you establish yours in a way that maximizes the benefits that you can receive. Setting up your trust in the most beneficial way may require you to navigate the provisions of complex laws.

We advise our clients about the ways to set up their trusts so that they receive the benefits to which they should be entitled. With strong estate planning, our clients and their families may enjoy solid finances and better qualities of life when illnesses strike. If you have questions about your estate planning and the potential benefits for which you might be eligible as a war veteran, you may learn more by reading the information on our wartime benefits page.
