As we previously explained, over two and one-half years ago, in January of 2015, the Department of Veterans Affairs proposed significant changes to the eligibility rules for VA pension benefits. After repeated delays in the implementation of the final rules, it is now being reported that the amendments to the 2015 proposed rule changes have been completed and the final rules could be released this fall.
With delay after delay, it is understandable to be skeptical of this most recent report. However, if it is accurate, we could see significant and unfortunately, drastic changes to the VA pension eligibility rules very soon. Stayed tuned for further updates.
