Understanding Veterans' Benefits

VA Benefits Seminar

The VA Aid and Attendance program provides pension benefits to help eligible veterans or eligible widowed spouses pay for care. It allows for a family member, such as a son or daughter, to provide this care. It can also be used to help pay for in-home professional nursing care, assisted living rent, medical insurance premiums, prescription drug co-pays and much more.

With Americans living longer than ever before, nearly half of all women and one-quarter of all men will likely live in a nursing home or long-term care facility at some point in life. Considering the high cost of such care, the unfortunate reality is that the majority of men and women go broke within the first year of entering a nursing home. Fortunately, there are ways to avoid this scenario. Medicaid Planning is one of the tools to pay for these high costs of care.

We can determine if you are eligible for these benefits and if so, we can help you obtain them. Our firm can help to assist veterans and their widowed spouses in Florida to preserve their assets and remain in their own homes for as long as possible.

Medicaid Planning Seminar

Did you know that there are thousands of Americans who are eligible for assistance, such as Medicaid for Nursing Homes or Assisted Living care, and never apply for these benefits? If you avoid the benefits of this process you could be wasting thousands of available dollars every year. Making sense of the Medicaid eligibility rules is a very daunting process. Our team helps families navigate the complex system and work hard to fix the problems of those who tried to do it themselves or without the assistance of an Attorney. This seminar will teach you the importance of timeliness, help you to understand if you need an Attorney, and guide you to being better prepared for what’s to come.

Estate Planning Workshop

Without an estate plan of your own, the IRS and the State of Florida will simply make one for you. Of course, the government is not interested in minimizing taxes or protecting the interests of you and your loved ones. This is why every family should have a customized estate plan created by a law firm that focuses on this specialized area of the law. If you are an older couple, you likely face different issues, such as safeguarding retirement assets, planning the possibility of incapacity, and ensuring your assets you have worked so hard to acquire will go to who you want, when you want, in the manner you want. We offer a complete range of estate planning services to meet your particular needs.
