Pension Aid & Attendance (PAA) benefit can provide extra income to help with the cost of care in the home, or in an institutional setting. But, as with any government program, eligibility for the PAA benefit is complicated. In this session, Attorney Erin Majka will discuss the recent changes to the benefit eligibility rules, including the rules related to how the asset limit is calculated, what is included in the “homestead exemption,” and rules that impose penalties if people transfer or give away assets in an attempt to become eligible.
