It is hard enough for our Elder Law clients to make the decision to enter a loved one into long-term care – but add complex contracts, lack of legal understanding, and emotional unrest and it becomes easy for your client to become overwhelmed. What happens when the loved one doesn’t qualify for Medicaid, or cannot pay for services through other means? After the contracts are signed, and the loved one is tucked in to their new residence, who might be on the hook for financial expenses?
In honor of Veteran’s Day, I wanted to talk about benefits available to Veterans and their spouses. The federal government offers a variety of benefits to Vets and their families, but many Vets are unsure how to access such benefits or aware of the eligibility requirements.
There are several benefits available, including education and training, compensation, home loans, rehabilitation, life insurance and pension offerings for Veterans and their dependents. Each benefit has its own eligibility requirements.
