As a nation we are proud of our veterans and grateful for their bravery. Nevertheless, we often hear of veterans who are not receiving the help and benefits they need. In a situation like this, an Elder Law attorney can provide counseling and legal assistance to help determine the benefits you are entitled to, how to apply for them and when to file appeals for rejected claims.
As a veteran, you are eligible to apply for a variety of benefits. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides health care and long-term care, disability compensation and Aid and Attendance Pension benefits to veterans.
