Trusted Veteran's Benefits Planning Attorneys in North Carolina

If you are a Veteran or widow of a Veteran, you may be entitled to certain Veteran’s Benefits from the US Department of Veteran Affairs (VA).

We proudly serve those who have served our country, helping them get the benefits and resources they have more than earned.

Charlotte Veteran's Aid & Attendance Pension

At McIntyre Elder Law, we understand the depth of your sacrifice because we’ve been there. Founder Greg McIntyre, is a Navy Veteran himself, committed to serve fellow Veterans like you.

The Veterans Aid & Attendance (A&A) Pension benefit can be a significant relief for aging Veterans. You may be entitled to up to $34,000 per year.

The A&A benefit can help cover the costs of long-term care, from assisted living facilities and home care aids to adult daycare or skilled nursing.

Even if you didn’t retire from the military or suffer an injury in the line of duty, you may still qualify. However, the application process is complex and bureaucratic. It’s disheartening how often Veterans are unjustly denied benefits.

We’re committed to standing by your side, navigating these challenging waters together. You served our country when it mattered most. Now, it’s our turn to serve you.

Hometown Heroes

Hometown Heroes is written by Elder Law Attorney and Navy Veteran Greg McIntyre. It’s designed to help heroes preserve the assets they’ve fiercely earned.

What benefits am I entitled to as a Veteran?

As a senior Veteran, or spouse of a Veteran you might be entitled to the Aid & Attendance (A&A) Pension benefit. 

This A&A Pension is for those needing help with activities of daily living. 

That includes tasks like bathing, dressing, using the toilet, moving around, and feeding oneself.

The Aid & Attendance Pension benefit may cover:

Home Care Services

Assisted Living

Skilled Nursing Care

There are asset, income, and medical requirements to qualify for VA Aid & Attendance benefits.

To ensure you aren’t wrongfully denied, contact our VA Accredited Attorney team so we can get you the benefits you deserve.

How can I qualify for benefits?

The Veterans Aid & Attendance Pension program provides monthly payments to help with long term care costs for Veterans and spouses who meet the following requirements:

Did you or your loved one serve for at least a one day during a war period, complete 90 days of continuous military service, and were discharged under conditions that were not dishonorable?

Then you might be eligible for this pension benefit.

At McIntyre Elder Law, we’re committed to helping Veterans and their loved ones protect their assets and legacies. We pride ourselves on being able to use legal methods under the VA Pension rules to assist you in qualifying for the benefits you deserve.

What estate planning documents do I need as a Veteran?

As a Veteran, it’s crucial to have a well-planned estate. You may have precious military medals, keepsakes, and personal items, beyond the usual assets, that you want to entrust to your family.

Solid estate planning ensures smooth transition of your belongings, reducing potential family disputes.

An approach to consider is the Veterans Asset Protection Trust (VAPT). The VA now looks at and penalizes asset transfers for 3 years preceding the benefits application date. Planning ahead and securing your assets with a VAPT is an important step when looking into the future qualifying for Veteran’s long-term care benefits.

Creating end-of-life documents in advance can lessen the strain in what can be an intensely emotional period. These documents include a Living Will, Medical Power of Attorney, and a Durable Power of Attorney.

Need help with your Veteran's Disability Claim?

If you were injured during your time serving, we offer guidance and support in navigating the complex process of Veteran’s disability claims and appeals.

Check out our quick video where Greg McIntyre explains more.

Mistakes or missing paperwork lead to unfair denials.

Applying for Veteran’s Benefits can feel like a maze. Applications are complex, and your claim may not contain everything required so you are qualified the first time around.

Each program has it’s own set of rules. Some, like Aid and Attendance, don’t require a service-related disability to qualify.

Meanwhile, other programs like disability compensation often try to give Veterans a reduced benefit because they don’t see your disability as severe enough. Or even worse, you get a flat out denial.

Don’t let the process discourage you. Even if you’ve faced a past denial, reach out to us. Together we’ll navigate the system and ensure you receive the benefits you rightly deserve.
