VA Announces Legal and Financial Planning Services are Now Available for Family Caregivers

On April 25, 2023, the VA issued the following announcement:

The Caregiver Support Program (CSP) is introducing a new nationwide service offering comprehensive legal and financial planning services to Primary Family Caregivers enrolled in the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC). A network of licensed attorneys and certified financial counselors are readily accessible to provide expert-led consultative services and personalized concierge case management to ensure the timely resolution of any presenting issues.

Starting April 24, 2023, this important resource is now available to Primary Family Caregivers nationwide. To access these critical resources, interested caregivers can contact their local Caregiver Support Team, who will provide the necessary information.

To further enhance accessibility, CSP will soon launch an online portal enabling caregivers to conveniently access financial and legal resources from anywhere, at any time. At our core, we are committed to supporting Primary Family Caregivers in achieving their caregiving goals through expert-led guidance and reliable support.


PCAFC provides specialized clinical support services to caregivers of eligible Veterans enrolled in VA health care who are seriously injured or ill and meet specific criteria. Specialized services provided through PCAFC include a monthly stipend, robust clinical resources such as respite and mental health counseling, and health insurance, if eligible.
