VETERANS

Our veterans have selflessly served this country, and deserve to receive excellent treatment in return for that service.  Even though the Veterans Administration pledges to provide timely and accessible service, they are not your strongest ally when it comes to Estate Planning. Many veterans and their surviving spouses may not be receiving an important benefit that they are entitled.

QUESTIONS WE CAN HELP YOU WITH

What is the maximum monthly benefit for the improved pension program?
Can I always keep $80,000 of assets and get VA pension benefits?
Will the Veterans Administration try to recover against excluded assets such as home or car after death if benefits are received?
Is the surviving spouse of a wartime Veteran (not dishonorably discharged) sometimes eligible for such Veterans benefits?

VA Benefit planning seems to be continually under attack.  In addition to the questions stated above, changes in rules and regulations make the process very difficult without someone on your side who is an expert in this type of Estate Planning.  Accredited by the VA, Michael B. Cohen and his expert team can help guide veterans, surviving spouses, and family members by preparing applications, planning, and providing legal counsel and advice on Veterans pension benefits (including the Aid and Attendance Allowance) planning.  Let our trusted attorneys answer all of your concerns and help you with your future benefits and financial security.
