Veterans and their spouses may be entitled to certain benefits from the federal government for their service to our country. Some benefits arise as compensation for a service-related or nonservice-related disability or injury. Other benefits result as pension for service given during active wartime.
These benefits can be particularly helpful as veterans age and face increasing costs of care—whether at home, or through assisted living and skilled nursing facilities. That said, some veterans’ benefits are based on income, assets, and medical necessity. We, the Attorneys of Hayes & Wilson PLLC, help our clients understand their planning options to meet the financial criteria. For instance, perhaps a Trust would be appropriate to preserve an individual’s ability to qualify for veterans’ benefits. We review each client’s situation and counsel him or her about available options.
Additionally, it is not just veterans who are eligible for veterans’ benefits. Spouses of wartime veterans may qualify for certain VA Programs, such as Aid and Attendance, if they require the aid and attendance of another person or are housebound. If you are a veteran or the spouse of a veteran, our Attorneys can meet with you to discuss all of the options that may be available to you and your spouse from the federal government and tailor your estate plan accordingly.
The attorneys of Hayes & Wilson PLLC have years of experience helping Texas veterans and their family members create solid estate plans that take VA Benefits into account. We invite you to contact us for a consultation to discuss your needs.
