To meet and discuss VA Aid & Attendance Benefits

ANYONE, including attorneys, MUST BE ACCREDITED BY THE VA before giving advice about a specific VA application (a “claim”) for VA eligibility (38 CFR 14.629). Additionally, non-lawyers MUST refrain from the unauthorized practice of law when providing advice or services to your residents or prospective clients.

            Many non-lawyers, who are typically financial planners, offer seminars in facilities to prospect for clients. However, once there is even an expression of interest in moving forward on an individual claim, VA ACCREDITATION IS MANDATORY before ANY advice, whether legal or financial advice, can legally be provided.
            For everyone’s protection, have anyone prove that they are ACCREDITED before they are allowed to meet with prospective clients or residents!
