Selis Elder Law of Florida

We help Florida seniors and their loved ones create estate planning and elder care plans that address two things: Protection of their life's savings from threats while they are alive and keeping those savings in the family after they die. You don't have to be rich to want those things to happen. While many Florida Seniors have a Will or Trust, our experience is that those documents don't reach those goals. If you want to keep your savings in YOUR family after you die, wonder how to find and pay for good care at home, or in a Florida assisted living community or nursing home, we can help.

Benefits for Veterans

    The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers a myriad of benefits to veterans. As a general rule, a veteran is defined as someone who served in the armed forces of the United States. Reservists and National Guard are generally not considered veterans for benefits purposes except under certain special conditions. For some benefits, up to 2 years or more of service is required.

    In 2015, VA reported that 55% of the 22.7 million veterans in the U.S are age 60 and older. There are several benefits available and more applicable to these senior veterans and their spouses.
