Senior Services of Southwest Michigan

Kalamazoo, MI 49001

LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED

1 HOUR OF CE CREDIT FOR SOCIAL WORKERS

  • Understand new divestment and asset limit rules for VA enhanced pension benefits
  • Learn about new rules for calculating medical deductions
  • See how Medicaid long-term care eligibility rules intersect with VA pension benefit rules

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.

Space is Limited. Early registration secures your spot!
