Thank you for your interest in attending an ElderCounsel education event. We will be hosting all of our education events using an online platform until at least Spring 2022. We look forward to seeing you all in person again. We will be reassessing our timeline in early 2022 and make any relevant announcement with ample time for you to make the necessary travel plans.

Have you always wanted to learn how to help the wartime Veterans and their spouses in your community? Does your firm provide estate planning and elder law services but not VA pension planning? Were you using VA pension planning strategies but stopped when the rules changed?

The VA (Veteran’s Administration) pension rules went through a substantial change over the last few years. Some attorneys that were practicing in this area stopped providing this help to their clients because they did not know the planning strategies that were available under the new rules. Other attorneys have been helping their clients with traditional planning services and did not have time to expand into VA pension planning. Now that the dust has settled, it is time to learn the new rules and how to help the qualified wartime Veterans and their spouses in your community. Whether it is a new practice area, an expansion of your legal services or a restart to a service you provided before the rule change this course is for you.

The day long Comprehensive Planning Strategies for Wartime Veterans course will walk you through the current qualification rules, planning techniques and drafting considerations needed for successful implementation.

Who Should Attend:
Attorneys looking to expand into planning for wartime Veterans as part of their estate planning or elder law firms.
