Planning for the Future
Free Financial, Legal and Social Resources for Military and Veteran Caregivers
Military Officers Association of America (MOAA)
The American Bar Association
The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), with assistance from USAA and the American Bar Association (ABA), has launched a web-based guide to aid caregivers in contingency planning and decision-making: Tips for Lifelong Caregiving. The website, supported by an Elizabeth Dole Foundation Innovation Grant, includes resources for military and veteran benefits, counsel and support for financial and legal issues (both during or after transitioning from the military), as well as long-term planning.

This initiative is enhanced through a major national collaborative effort—Lawyers for Heroes—a partnership between the Center for Veterans Advancement (CVA) at Public Counsel, ABA and MOAA to offer free legal support to military families who are struggling the most financially. Google has incorporated its online collaboration service Helpouts into the site, giving military caregivers the ability to speak online with social workers who can provide free screening and resource assistance.
