The national care planning Council estimates that approximately 11.5 million seniors — about 33% of all people over 65 — could qualify for a basic Pension or Death Pension by meeting the tests outlined in this site. That’s how many wartime veterans or their living spouses we have in this country. Unfortunately, few people know how to get this benefit and currently only 4.7% of those who are eligible are actually receiving it.

Don’t wait until your medical expenses become even more overwhelming. I’m here to help you with your NJ Veterans pension benefit and elder law planning needs.

Why Choose Hanlon Niemann




I’m a World War II Veteran and reside in an assisted living residence in Monmouth County, New Jersey. I hired Mr. Niemann, an attorney recommended to me by my family attorney as a lawyer experienced in elder law and veteran benefits. I hired his firm for asset protection planning, Medicaid for my wife and the filing of an application for Veterans Aid and Attendance benefits. The staff and professionals at Hanlon Niemann were all very capable, responsive and caring. I feel like they are family to me.

My legal affairs were capably and diligently processed and I was able to obtain the benefits my wife and I desperately needed.

I am grateful to Mr. Niemann and will recommend his office to all of my veteran friends.

My wife and I wanted to express our gratitude for the guidance and patience from you and your staff along this journey. Life is strange at times and the things that bring us together can be just as strange, if not more.

I not only got to put a few bucks in the bank, but got to reconnect with my cousin Sarah, which was a great surprise for me. That alone was worth the journey for me. Getting to know her and the family has been really nice.

I know it was a long day for all of us in mediation, but I really am blessed to have gotten to know you and talk with you. I admire your skills, work ethic and attitude regarding time and Patience. When the opposing attorney was running her big mouth and doing her thing, you never lost your composure, nor your position. I’m hoping it’s one of the nuggets I’m able to take and implement in my personal/professional life.

The short version of this story is that you have a lot to offer people, you’re a true, trusted advisor. Your words and actions seem to align with your values, which is like common sense, very hard to come by now a days. Your staff does a great job as well. Please let them know that as often as you can.

Keep up the good work Fred and thanks again.
