NAELA Pays Tribute on Veterans Day
Association for Elder and Special Needs Law Attorneys Observes National Holiday Recognizing Veterans for Their Service

Washington, DC —  On November 11, Americans will be honoring military service men and women across the country with parades, ceremonies, and other events to thank them for their service. The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) recognizes veterans not only on this day, but throughout the year by assisting veterans and their families in obtaining their hard-earned public service benefits.

“NAELA member attorneys are committed to assisting veterans and their families through advocacy and education. NAELA published an article warning consumers about annuity sales schemes for VA Aid and Attendance benefits and put out a press release discussing changes to the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Veterans Pension,” said NAELA President Jennifer L. VanderVeen, CELA, CAP, NAELA Fellow.
