Each state has Veteran's Service Offices who help vets and families with a wide range of benefits. They do so for free. Additionally, there are many attorneys who are VA-accredited, who can often be of more assistance than a VSO can because they can coordinate current VA benefits planning with future Medicaid planning. Don't assume that just because the VA has said you don't qualify that you can't qualify either. That is a common trap for many people. Also, don't use annuity salespeople as veteran's experts. They generally only know about annuities. You can find the VA-accredited attorneys in your area by going to the VA.gov website or by simply doing a web-search.
