Mark Shalloway, renowned elder law attorney in West Palm Beach, announces the publication of his piece on the expansion of a bill for caregivers of disabled veterans. Mr. Shalloway is known for doing what he can to help his population of clients. Among offering them diligent service and even free seminars on estate planning, Mark Shalloway regularly publishes updates in the field of elder care on his blog, so that his clients are aware of what is happening in their world.
In his most recent post, Mark Shalloway updates his clients on a bill that was approved earlier this year. The VA Mission Act allows a wider range of benefits available for caregivers of disabled veterans. Initially, the bill was created to provide benefits to veterans following 9/11, and a monthly stipend, training, and health insurance to their caregivers.
It was realized in recent years that this bill should be more inclusive, as there are a number of veterans and caregivers who need help and were not receiving it, under this bill. Beginning in early 2019, the bill will expand to provide coverage to those who were severely injured in the line of duty before May of 1975—or during the years of the Vietnam War.
While elder law is Mr. Shalloway’s focus, his umbrella also covers veterans. There are problems with the bill and the disbursement of funds, and to claim these benefits that are being withheld, many need a good lawyer. That is why Mr. Shalloway and his firm felt obligated to bring light to this updated bill—to finally allow clients the help they need.
