Our legal team helps you and your loved ones obtain veterans’ aid benefits to which you may be entitled.

Veterans' Aid and Attendance

When an individual and, in some cases, married couples have stepped away from their normal lives and left their families to serve our country, they deserve to be treated well upon return. If disability was a part of their active duty, there may be expensive, ongoing medical treatment and care. Long-term care costs can even drive some military families into bankruptcy. Fortunately, if you are a Veteran or a Widow of a Veteran, you may be entitled to tax-free income from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Many service men and women are unaware of these benefits. The additional income can not only assist with daily living expenses but also help to fund the high cost of home health care, assisted living or nursing home care.

How We Can Help

Since June 2008, the VA requires anyone who assists a veteran or his/her family member with the preparation, presentation and prosecution of a claim for benefits must be accredited by and through the VA itself, before they may legally provide assistance.

At Fendrick Morgan, our attorneys are accredited through the VA and are proud to serve our veterans. We will help you navigate through the myriad of VA rules and regulations to help receive the valuable government benefits to which you may be entitled.

If you are a veteran and or widow(er) looking for an attorney in New Jersey, look no further. Contact us today to learn if you qualify for these benefits.
