Do I Need to Hire an Attorney for VA Aid & Attendance

If you’re familiar with the VA office, then you know that sometimes there are hoops to jump through simply in order to get access to your well-earned benefits. The rules and regulations guiding this service are often updated each year with new laws that affect Veterans. 


And actually, the Department of Veteran Affairs will only work with law firms that are accredited by the VA. Sandra Perez Ard (aka Sandy), Ard Law Firm’s founding attorney, has paid her dues and worked hard to ensure quality legal services to Veterans across the great state of Texas by becoming a VA accredited attorney. 


What is VA Aid & Attendance? 

According to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, “Aid & Attendance (A&A) is an increased monthly pension amount paid if you meet one of the conditions below: 

  • You require help performing daily functions, which may include bathing, eating, or dressing. 
  • You are bedridden. 
  • You are a patient in a nursing home. 
  • Your eyesight is limited to a corrected 5/200 visual acuity or less in both eyes; or concentric concentration of the visual field to 5 degrees or less.” 


Over the past decade, we’ve helped many aging Veterans and their spouses in Texas keep their homes and afford assisted living. At Ard Law Firm, PLLC, we’ve learned how best to navigate the application process to ensure that everything works out smoothly for you and your family’s needs. 


Our attorneys attend continuous training that keeps them up to date on the laws and regulations that affect your assets when applying for VA Aid & Attendance. This specialized training and continued education is why hiring a VA accredited attorney is very important. 


We care about our nation’s Veterans and will work hard to get you and your loved ones all that you deserve. When you let us get you your entitled benefits, the benefits come to you and your family, giving you full control. It allows you to decide who you want to use as caregivers or what assisted living facility you want to live at. You maintain control of your money, not the service who helped you get the benefits.
