The Veteran’s Administration has enacted significant changes that will go into effect October 18, 2018 regarding VA Aid and Attendance Benefits. Under prior rules, any home residence was considered exempt from asset limitations. However, homes on property more than two (2) acres in size, will no longer be exempt after October 18, 2018. Under the new regulations, a home on property exceeding two (2) acres is only not counted if it can be shown that the excess acreage is not merchantable. If you are looking at making an application to receive VA Aid and Attendance benefit, you are strongly urged to contact an accredited Veteran’s Administration attorney to discuss immediate preservation of your rights. Any delay after October 18,2018 could result in disqualification of your benefits.
