2016 will be bringing numerous changes to both process and eligibility with respect to levels of benefits for which veterans may apply.
Miller, Miller & Canby attorney, Helen M. Whelan is accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs to advise veterans and their families on financial benefits for which they may qualify.
Applying for benefits is often a long and difficult process. Because many VA laws are complex, it is helpful to have guidance in navigating through the regulations and the steps involved. Helen will advise you on the levels of financial benefits for which you may qualify and we strive to make the claims process easier so you can focus on providing for your family and successfully navigating your future.
Not only does Helen outline the steps necessary to qualify for benefits and assist in the process, she also helps with putting together a subsequent strategy. There are specific instances where counsel is helpful in implementing long-term planning. For example, it may be advantageous to move assets into a trust as part of a detailed financial plan.
