My father was a veteran. Can my parents qualify for the VA Aid and Attendance Benefits?
The VA Aid and Attendance benefit is available for both the veteran, and the surviving spouse, who need assistance with daily living, if the veteran served at least three months in the service during war-time where one day of combat took place, even if the veteran was not in the actual combat. There is, however, a financial threshold for eligibility. Using strong powers of attorneys, trusts, and gifting, we can usually help a veteran or surviving spouse qualify for the VA Aid and Attendance benefit without having to first exhaust all financial resources. If your loved one needs assistance with their daily living activities, you should contact us right away to learn about the benefits that may be available to you, even if you still have assets and resources of your own.
