A personal message from Accredited NJ Veterans Attorney, Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. to our Veterans

As a veteran, you deserve special treatment in America. My job is to help you get the pension benefit you are entitled to.

In recognition of your service, I have prepared this informational website filled with advice, helpful tips and answers to the most frequently asked questions that I deal with as an attorney working with Veterans and surviving spouces for Veterans Pension Benefits eligibility.

Your inquiries are always welcome at Hanlon Niemann, a client friendly office with kind, patient and compassionate professionals. Let our experience guide and protect you.


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.
