Asset Test for Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefit

Texas Veterans Trust Benefits Attorney

The Veterans Administration provides assistance to Veterans as they grow older or are disabled. The VA provides what is called the Veterans Aid & Attendance Benefit. It provides pensions as well as help to Veterans needing professional home care, assisted living or nursing home assistance. To qualify for these benefits, however, the Veteran must meet an Asset Test. This means that he must have no more than a certain amount of assets. Fortunately if he fails the test, he can handle this with the assistance of a Texas Veterans trust benefits lawyer.

The Asset Test

There is no fixed amount but the generally accepted figure is $80,000. Total assets below this figure generally meet the Asset Test as calculated by VA personnel. This not a fixed rule though and it is has been known for a Veteran with as little as $20,000 in assets to be told he has flunked the Assets Test. Happily these difficulties can be handled. Unlike Medicaid, there is no look back in VA benefits. It is permissible to place your assets in trust to reduce your assets down to a level where you qualify for benefits.

Texas Veterans Trust Benefits Lawyer

I am Carol Butrus, a Texas Veterans trust benefits lawyer serving Texas Veterans. I help Veterans who have been told they flunked the Asset Test. I set up trusts called a Veterans Administration Aid and Attendance Pensions Benefits Trust to receive enough assets so Veterans now qualify for the professional home care, assisted living or nursing home assistance they need. I have helped my clients in creating many of these trusts for across Texas. My office is in Dallas but I can do everything by long distance so no there is no need to come to my office.

If you or someone you know needs this service, feel free to contact me. I am honored to help these people who have done so much for their country.
