It’s easy to feel lost among all the government-issued programs and benefits out there. In this presentation, Scott Stewart, an Elder Law Attorney in San Diego, CA will help you navigate the programs designed to help veterans, and their spouses, pay for care. We’ll take an even closer look into the VA’s Aid & Attendance program – which provides tax-free income and free medications to qualifying veterans. You’ll learn all the aspects of this program, including who qualifies and what it takes to qualify. This presentation is not only for veterans, but also for anyone who works with and/or helps a veteran, or simply wants to learn more.
