Austin Estate Planning Overview

Qualifying for Texas Veteran's Aid Benefits

If you served your country while our country was declared at war, you may be entitled up to $24,000 tax free per year. Veteran's aid and attendance benefits are designed to provide financial support for individuals who served during WWI, WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War or Desert Shield/Desert Storm.

The requirements for receiving benefits are straightforward, but an experienced Austin Veteran's benefits attorney can help make sure you receive the financial protection you deserve. The Livens Law Firm has more than 20 years of experience helping individuals throughout Dallas-Fort Worth receive the financial assistance they need. The firm's founding attorney, Stephen Livens, is an accredited lawyer for VA benefits.

In order to qualify for benefits, a person must meet five basic criteria. The requirements include:

  • The individual must be active military service, the widow or a veteran
  • Asset restrictions
  • Income requirements
  • Health needs (not medical needs)
  • Unable to drive

Many people who apply for veteran's benefits are turned down because they have too much income or assets, because the wrong forms were filled out or the forms were filled out incorrectly. Last year our firm successfully completed hundreds of Medicaid and VA applications, and we had 100 percent success on every case.
