Certain eligibility requirements, such as a valid discharge, at least one day of service during a war time period, and 90 days of consecutive active duty are needed to qualify for a Veteran’s pension benefit. Benefits can be available for Veterans who are age 65+ or disabled.
Using a knowledgeable consultant who is an accredited VA attorney, can shorten the VA’s decision window and give you the guidance for meeting the asset and income test. The attorneys at Strohschein Law Group can counsel you about qualifying for these benefits, minimizing or avoiding taxes, family disputes, and Medicaid penalties.
