Home May Lose Exempt Status for VA Benefits

Although official VA regulations state that "a
veteran's or widow's home is exempt, "some Regional Center VA Adjudicators are mistakenly
taking the position that the home is no longer exempt because the veteran (or
widow) has left the home to reside in an Assisted Living Facility. 

If the
home is counted, the claimant's assets may exceed asset limits.  This is
especially the case if the home is being rented.
