Time Sensitive: NEW LAW ALERT from Solkoff Legal, P.A.

 

Who should read this notice: Wartime Veterans, their spouses, their relatives, caregivers and advisors.

Critical Planning and Eligibility Update

The VA has implemented major new rules governing VA pension including the “Homebound” and “Aid and Attendance” programs. These programs provide cash reimbursement to wartime Veterans and spouses whose care expenses are close to or higher than income. The number one use of this money for our clients is to pay for home health aides. The second most common use for our clients would be payment towards assisted living facilities.

Effective October 18, 2018, the VA will be imposing gift penalties. This means that if an applicant or spouse has made gifts after October 18th, the VA will take away eligibility. Gifts made prior to October 18th will not affect eligibility even if application is made after that date.

This notice explains the very basics.

Wartime Vets and their spouses should set an appointment. Limited appointments are available on a first call-first come basis. The meeting or call is provided at no charge for our existing Family Asset Protection Planning clients.

We have worked with Scott, Heather and the awesome team at Solkoff Legal for many years and have been pleased with their services. We often need a resource who is knowledgeable in elder law and special needs planning in the Delray area and we are confident when recommending this dynamic team. They are responsive, compassionate and all-around good people. I would recommend this group to anyone needing estate planning, elder law or special needs planning for their family.

When it comes to elder law, trust and estate planning, and medicaid asset protection, there is no name that is better known throughout Florida than SOLKOFF.  I have used Solkoff Legal for a long time, as has members of my family and clients whom I have referred. Attorney Scott Solkoff and his staff are true experts in this field, are consummate professionals, and have the client's best interests at heart. In fact, I believe Solkoff has received many awards not only for his humanitarian work in his community, but from his peers for his professional excellence.  I would recommend Solkoff to anyone looking for the very best...A+++!

We went to Solkoff Legal for advice on elder law. We needed to know what we could do, what we couldn't do, what we should do and what we shouldn't do. They were great.
