Texas VA Trust Attorney and the Application for Benefits

Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefits Trust and the Application Process

Disabled Veterans, Veterans over the age of 65 and surviving spouses may receive pension benefits or death benefits to defray the cost of Aid & Attendance from the Veterans Benefits Administration. Application for Texas Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefits is a complex and lengthy process. In order to apply you will need "VA Form 21-526, Veteran's Application for Compensation and / or Pension" and "Instructions for VA Form 21-526" and VA Form 21-34 and instructions for spouses. These forms require that you provide extensive financial information as to income, bank account balances, CDs, stocks, real estate, other assets and medical expenses. A veteran or surviving spouse who has substantial assets could have to reallocate assets and income to ensure VA Benefits eligibility. This is often best accomplished by the establishment of a trust through a Texas VA Trust Attorney.

During the application process the value of assets held by an applicant is one of the items which determines eligibility. Ownership of a vehicle and a home with a reasonable lot size is allowed. Although it is commonly thought that $80,000 in other assets is acceptable, there is no specified ceiling on the allowed amount. It depends upon the decision of the VA employee who is reviewing the application. If in the opinion of the VA reviewer there are any assets which could easily be converted to income the applicant may be ineligible for benefits. As an experienced Texas Veterans Aid & Attendance Trust lawyer I can assist an applicant to reduce personally held assets through the creation of a trust.
