Our Managing Attorney, Jerold E. Rothkoff, has shared a few highlights of Veteran’s Benefits as it relates to Rothkoff Law Group and our clients. At Rothkoff Law Group with offices in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, we work with a great deal of veterans or widowed spouse of an eligible veteran in conjunction with long-term care planning.
The Veteran’s Administration and specifically individuals who are eligible for VA Benefits can play an important role in accessing important care to keep an individual, specifically an elderly individual in the least restrictive environment.
There are a great deal of Veteran’s Benefits that our office assists with and the most important Veteran’s Benefits is a program known as the Aid and Attendance Program. This program provides a tax-free, non-service related pension benefit available to a veteran or a widowed spouse of an eligible veteran. However, there are important eligibility requirements that the individual must meet. For example, an individual must serve our country during a time of war. If we are applying on behalf of a widowed spouse the widowed spouse must have been married to the veteran at the time of his or her passing. Myself as a credited Veterans Benefits Attorney along with one of our Veteran’s Benefits Specialists, assist our clients in helping coordinate in accessing benefits. The Veteran’s Administration is a large bureaucracy. Please know we are here to help you get the benefits that you deserve.
