What veteran estate planning services does Heritage offer?

Attorney Jeffrey D. Banner of Heritage Elder Law & Estate Planning, LLC is a wartime veteran, and he has a firm understanding of the unique needs that veterans in the state of Pennsylvania have when it comes to estate planning. For example, oftentimes, service members are required to pack up and move across the country with very short notice. This is just one challenge that comes with being a U.S. service member, and these challenges ought to be reflected in your estate plan. While estate planning is always a critical issue, uncertain times particularly call for developing a comprehensive estate plan, and we are positively living in uncertain times now. Whether you are serving overseas or you are stationed here in the United States, you should have peace of mind, knowing that you have a sound estate plan and that your loved ones will be well taken care of. Our firm can help write your will, create trusts, create powers of attorney (either financial or healthcare, wherein you can appoint a trusted loved one to manage your finances or make critical healthcare decisions on your behalf, should you ever become incapacitated or unable to do so on your own), and more.

What is the VA Aid and Attendance Benefit?

Essentially, in many cases, veterans or surviving spouses of veterans may qualify for the VA Aid and Attendance Benefit, which is a higher monthly pension amount. This payment is designed to help cover the cost of basic daily activities, as well as skilled nursing care. Unfortunately, the qualifications to obtain this benefit are rather stringent, and many people are denied access to this benefit. If this has happened to you, you must speak with an experienced Pennsylvania veteran estate planning and elder law attorney who can work to appeal the decision and get you the benefits you deserve and need. If you have any further questions, give us a call today. We are here to help.
