VETERANS BENEFITS

AID & ATTENDANCE

Veterans and survivors who are eligible for a VA pension and require the aid and attendance of another person, or are housebound, may be eligible for additional monetary payment. These benefits are paid in addition to monthly pension, and they are not paid without eligibility to Pension.

Since Aid and Attendance and Housebound allowances increase the pension amount, people who are not eligible for a basic pension due to excessive income may be eligible for pension at these increased rates. A Veteran or surviving spouse may not receive Aid and Attendance benefits and Housebound benefits at the same time.

For more information: www.va.benefits.gov

 

HOW TO APPLY:

You may apply for Aid and Attendance or Housebound benefits by writing to your VA regional office or you can contact Haelewyn Harris Law PLLC and we can help you through the application process.


Special Needs Planning

 

Questions involved for estate planning for individuals with special needs include:

  • Is there a way to leave funds for a disabled individual without causing them to lose public/government benefits?
  • How do you make sure there’s enough money to meet the disabled individual’s needs?
  • What type of documents should a disabled individual have to make sure they are protected?
 
 

At Haelewyn Harris Law PLLC we can help you or your family member answer these important questions and to formulate the best estate planning strategies for you and your loved ones. We are actively engaged in insuring that your important estate planning goals are met.


PET TRUSTS

You don't have to be a millionaire to have a legal document that provides for the care of your pet if something was to happen to you. We offer a simple yet comprehensive "Paw Plan" that includes requirements such as necessary veterinary visits, living arrangements, naming a caregiver, and, most importantly, providing peace of mind for you.


TRUST ADMINISTRATION

Trust administration occurs after the death of the Settlor(s). A Settlor is defined as the person who created and/or funded the Trust. Trust administration involves overseeing the assets held within a trust and then ensuring that the assets are distributed according to the Settlor(s) wishes.

If you are a Trustee and are faced with administering a Trust agreement, contact Haelewyn Harris Law PLLC to ensure proper administration and to give you peace of mind that the process is being handled correctly.

PROBATE LAW

Probate is a legal process which involves administering the estate of a deceased person. This process involves resolving all claims and then distributing assets according to a will, or according to court rules if a will has not been executed. If an individual has passed away without setting up a Trust correctly or funding it completely, then you may be faced with Probate Court Proceedings.
