Veteran Benefits Attorney In Orlando

If you have served in the United States military, you may be eligible for a number of benefits for the rest of your life. In thanks and gratitude for your commitment to your country, the state operates many programs to aid and support veterans and their families.

Veteran benefit programs include pension programs, affordable health care, compensation for disabilities, and even educational programs and job training. Veteran benefit attorneys have access to the latest information regarding programs for which you may be eligible.

You must have been honorably discharged from service to be eligible for benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Before you can fully enjoy VA benefits, you have to complete some important paperwork that has implications for whether your application will be accepted or denied for various programs.

Veterans should seek guidance from an experienced veteran benefits attorney before proceeding with the application process. Reach out to Family First Firm to schedule a consultation and identify the appropriate steps to apply for the VA benefit programs applicable to you.

Consult The Family First Firm

Consulting a veteran benefits attorney will help you prepare for the following:

  • Paperwork and documentation necessary in applying for VA benefits
  • Discuss your eligibility for other VA benefits such as housing loans
  • Keep you updated with the new benefits and requirements of the VA benefits program in Orlando

What Are The Requirements To Qualify For Va Benefits?

The basic requirement for a veteran to qualify for VA benefits is that they were not discharged dishonorably from active military service. To apply, you need to submit a copy of the paperwork given to you upon discharge. Spouses and children of such veterans may be eligible for a variety of benefit programs.

However, the requirements do not end there. Each VA program has its own set of guidelines and additional requirements to follow. For example, to be eligible for the veteran’s Aid & Attendance pension, you need to be at least 65 years old, unable to work, and have limited income. If you want to qualify for a home loan, completing at least 90 days of active duty service or serving at least 181 days of active service during peacetime is enough.

Va Benefits For Seniors

As we age, we tend to face more health problems and new sets of financial challenges. Growing old usually means that we are more at risk for various kinds of health conditions. Many lines of work are not suitable for seniors, regardless of how capable they may have been while in the service.

Fortunately, the state offers several programs for veteran seniors in appreciation for their service. Qualifying senior applicants may enjoy benefits such as a pension program with a monthly stipend, or low-cost health care services in accredited medical facilities. Veterans with a disability may also be eligible to receive additional disability compensation.

If you want to know more about the benefits and programs under the VA for yourself or a family member, schedule a consultation today with our veteran benefits attorney at the Family First Firm.

What Are The Benefits For The Veteran’s Family?

Another advantage of being a veteran is that the VA benefits extend to family members, as well.
If a veteran has dependents, like a spouse and child, they can also qualify under the various benefits programs offered by the VA.

These programs include medical and educational assistance, such as job training. Home loan programs are also available for surviving spouses of veterans. If you are a veteran or the surviving spouse or child of a veteran, call Family First Firm to discuss how you may qualify for these benefits.

Why Consult A Veteran Benefits Attorney?

There are several reasons why you should consult a lawyer for veteran benefits. First, a veteran benefits attorney can help you prepare all the necessary paperwork for the application.

Second, your attorney can keep you abreast of updates regarding new guidelines and qualifications set by the Veteran Benefits Administration. Additionally, an experienced veteran benefits attorney can help you to appeal a denied application.

Contact Family First Firm today to schedule a consultation, and we can begin working with you to secure your benefits through the VA program.
