Calculating Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefits

Texas Veterans Aid & Attendance Trust attorney

Veterans may qualify for certain benefits to help them when they are disabled or retired. This is part of the Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension Benefit Program. Calculations of the benefits vary according to circumstances but they can be far more than people realize. They make it possible for Veterans to have professional home care, assisted living or nursing home services they could not otherwise afford. For help in qualifying for Aid & Attendance contact a Texas Veterans Aid & Attendance Trust lawyer.

Calculations of Veteran Aid & Attendance Benefits

A veteran needing to be in assisted living or a nursing home can get benefits up to $18,000 annually to pay for service. For professional home care a veteran can get as much as $1,550 per month. His surviving spouse can get up to $1000 per month and together can get up to $1850 per month. Qualifying for the benefits can require some handling. Many Veterans do not have the income to pay for professional home care, assisted living or nursing home care on their own. Yet when they go to the VA to apply they are told they have too much property to qualify. To handle this it is necessary to set up what is called a Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance Pensions Benefits Trust to get their assets down to a qualifying level.

Texas Veterans Aid & Attendance Trust Lawyer

I am Carol Butrus, a Texas Veterans Aid & Attendance Trust lawyer, serving Veterans throughout the state of Texas. I help Veterans qualify for their benefits so they can get the professional home care, assisting living or nursing home care they need. Where they have been told they have too much property to qualify, I help them by putting some of their property in a trust to get them down to acceptable levels of assets. This trust is called a Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance Pensions Benefits Trust. I have been a Texas lawyer for 23 years. Over the last few months I have done 28 of these trusts for Veterans across Texas. I am located in Dallas but all work can be done without coming into my office.
