Monk Law Firm, PLLC has served veterans and their families for over a decade. We are proud to help Veterans, surviving spouses and their families navigate new chapters and we are grateful for their service to our country. After vacationing in Florida for years and developing a relationship with a non-profit organization called NAVF whose mission is to serve veterans, Ryan and Michelle Monk are proud to team up with Stephanie Hochberger, a Florida licensed estate planning, probate and elder law attorney. We look forward to bringing our combined knowledge and experience to serve our Veterans, seniors and their families.

Aid and Attendance Benefit

Wartime veterans and their surviving spouses age 65 and older may be entitled to a tax-free benefit called Aid and Attendance. This benefit which is provided by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs is designed to help off set the cost of long term care for our Veterans.

Aid and Attendance is especially useful for veterans and their families because the monthly payment is tax-free and never has to be repaid. The benefit can be used for in-home care, care in an assisted living facility or nursing home care.

Who is Eligible?

  1. Veterans who served on active duty for at least 90 consecutive days, including at least one day during wartime and who were honorably discharged may be eligible for Aid and Attendance.

    According to the Veteran’s Administration, wartime service is defined by:

    • World War II: December 7, 1941—December 31, 1946
    • Korean Conflict: June 27, 1950—January 31, 1955
    • Vietnam Era: February 28, 1961—May 7, 1975, for veterans who served in the Republic of Vietnam during that period; otherwise August 5, 1964—May 7, 1975
    • Gulf War: August 2, 1990, through a future date, to be set by Presidential proclamation or law. For VA benefits purposes, this time of war is still in effect
  2. Veterans, age 65 or older who need assistance with at least two activities of daily life. This can include bathing, eating, taking medications, etc.
  3. Veterans who meet the financial requirements. This is where Monk Law Firm, PLLC can help with planning for the Veteran’s care and preserve and protect the Veteran’s legacy.

We are honored that you have chosen to work with Monk Law Firm, PLLC and we look forward to helping you and your family plan, protect and preserve your legacy.
