Who is Eligible for Texas Veterans Benefits?
Texas Veterans Trust Benefits Attorney
I am attorney Carol Butrus and I am proud of serving Texas Veterans in becoming eligible for certain benefits. I help Veterans qualify for Veteran Aid and Attendance benefits. These benefits pay Veterans up to $18000 annually for assisted living or nursing home care. Many Veterans do not have enough money to pay for care themselves but still do not qualify for the Veterans benefits because they have too much property. I help these Veterans by drafting a Veterans Aid and Attendance Trust. With these trusts, the veteran puts his assets such as real estate or stocks into the trust. This lowers his overall assets and qualifies him for Veterans Aid and Attendance.
I have assisted many Texas Veterans in creating trusts. I have been an estate planning attorney in Texas for over 23 years. My office is in Dallas but I help Veterans all over Texas. It is not necessary to come visit me to accomplish what is needed to become eligible. We can do all of this by long distance. If you or someone you know needs assistance setting up a trust to qualify for Veterans benefits, contact a Texas Veterans trust benefits lawyer.
