As the cost of extended care can be financially devastating, we believe that the VA Pension with Aid and Attendance was passed and funded by Congress with the intention not only to honor our veterans but also to preserve their dignity when they are in need of care. We believe that even though a veteran or surviving spouse’s income or assets may be too high based on Title 38 requirements to qualify for pension benefits, this can change instantly when a veteran slips and falls in the shower. Therefore, we have trained professional agents in most states in the US, who can reach out to potential claimants and their families to develop a plan that will allow them to extend their assets so that they will qualify and preserve their assets so as their cost of care increases they will not run out of funds. These professionals have been carefully screened and their activities are consistently monitored.Visit Website
