Benefits For Surviving Spouses Of Veterans


Behind every active duty U.S. solider is a resilient wife or husband single-handedly holding down the fort back home. U.S. Veterans benefits, including special pensions programs, recognize these Veterans and their spouses for their contribution to the protection of our nation and freedoms.

Law Offices of Gerald L. Kane, located in Encino, California, represents Veterans and their surviving spouses, in the process of securing special pension benefits, beginning with the application.

If you believe you may be eligible to collect benefits as the surviving spouse of a Veteran, contact our attorneys today to schedule a no-obligation consultation: 818-905-6088.

What It Takes To Qualify

To be eligible for special pension benefits, the surviving spouses of veterans must meet income eligibility requirements, and must not have more than $80,000 of assets. However, a variety of estate planning tools can be used to protect income eligibility for Veterans benefits while preserving assets, including the family home.

The surviving spouse of a Veteran can qualify as well as long as he or she has not yet remarried.

Gerry Kane understands the interconnectedness of Veterans benefits and other government assistance programs such as Medicaid and Medi-Cal, and he will ensure that you understand that to which you are entitled as a whole.
