We Can Help You With Eligibility for VA Pension and Aid & Attendance Benefits and File a Claim with the VA

The Department of Veterans Affairs offers a wide range of benefits. However, filing a claim is notoriously complicated, and all too often, eligible veterans are denied the benefits to which they are entitled. The VA issued new rules in October 2018 including a new asset and income cap, transfer penalties, and additional eligibility guidelines. Our goal is to help educate veterans on their planning options to help them secure the benefits they need.
