Please forgive me if this is a duplicate, but I didn't see my last question come through(?). My dad is 91 and we're applying for Vet's benefits. I can't get a firm answer to my questions re whether or not the VA has implemented a look back period for transferring assets. Everything I've read on the internet indicates the VA tried to pass a law requiring a look back, but it was never fully signed. My local VA counselor insists that the VA DOES have a look back period, but he can't give me the particulars. A guy who write books about how to get VA benefits tells me that there is a 3 years look back even though congress never approved a law authorizing this AND, I just spoke to an elder law attorney who definitely tells me that there is currently NO look back period and not to worry one bit about transferring assets...ARGH! Does anyone out there know what the real scoop is and what the authority for it is? I would really appreciate some help with this - we have to make a decision re all this in the next week.
