Join Us November 12th for Maximizing Veterans Benefits with Attorney Tye Cressman

Get the Most Out of Your VA Benefits

 Sweeping Veteran’s Administration (VA) rule changes at the end of 2018 impact all Veterans and spouses who need (or may need) long-term care in the future. Specifically, VA benefits have great potential for persons needing in-home care and assistance, or personal care. Properly used, the Homebound and Aid & Assistance benefits can be a tremendous financial resource for Veterans and spouses seeking to pay for ongoing care. For example, a wartime veteran who meets the required criteria may receive up to $1881.40 in Aid and Attendance funds to help pay for living at Cribbs Residential Center or other personal care homes.

Attorney Tye Cressman, Esq., CELA, will present “Maximizing Veteran’s Benefits in 2019” on Tuesday, November 12th at 2:00 p.m. in the Barco Chapel at Grace Rehabilitation and Health Center. He will review the current eligibility guidelines for VA benefits and discuss planning options that apply to Veterans and families seeking eligibility.

Tye Cressman is a Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA) focusing on the areas of elder law, estate planning, Medicaid planning, trust formation, and special needs planning. He was certified as an elder law attorney by the National Elder Law Foundation (NELF) in 2014 and accredited to represent claims of Veterans in 2012.
