If you’ve been rejected for the Department of Veterans Affairs Aid and Attendance (A&A) benefit, there are steps you can take to get your application reconsidered. This article lists some options you could do to move forward after the Veteran receives the denial letter after applying for A&A. “Do not do what the V.A. denial letter suggests you do, If possible, don’t go it alone. Although the V.A. does not allow you to pay someone to help you fill out the application right from the start, the department does allow applicants to pay for a V.A.-accredited professional to handle an appeal, Be warned: A lot of the organizations that claim to help get you the A&A benefit turn out to be less than scrupulous. Some specialize in selling annuities or moving assets into a trust to hide them for heirs and to help applicants qualify who are not genuinely in need — practices that skirt the edge of legality, and not everyone has the money to pay a consultant. You can get free help from your local V.A. office or veteran service officers in various nongovernmental organizations for veterans. But they are not always as well trained as you might hope.”
