The much anticipated look back period has finally been enacted by the Veteran’s Administration. The Veteran’s Administration has enacted significant changes that will go into effect October 18, 2018. Under prior regulations, there was no look back period on transfers of assets into trusts or annuities to meet for the asset requirement to qualify for VA Aid and Attendance benefits. If you attempt to transfer assets to qualify for Aid and Attendance benefits after October 18, 2018, there will now be a three (3) year look back period and possible spend down. 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. Our telephone number is 225-769-4200.
