VA Claims & Benefits
Imagine spending years wading through the
bureaucratic red tape offered up by the VA only to find you've been denied a
disability claim. Where do you turn? Don't walk away in defeat. VFW understands
the frustration associated with claims and that's why our National Veterans
Service (NVS) program was formed. VFW Service Officers have the expertise and
guidance you need.
Benefits Delivery at Discharge
You've worked hard for your benefits. We're here to help you
understand them. In 2001, VFW launched its Benefits Delivery at Discharge (BDD)
program at military installations across the country. A cooperative initiative
with the Pentagon and the Department of Veterans Affairs, BDD was established to
assist service members departing from the military. Pre-discharge claims
representatives at each BDD site help wade through the paperwork for veterans
seeking VA entitlements. These representatives also discuss education and
medical benefits and VA home loans.
VFW Unmet Needs program provides a lifeline for
service members who run into unexpected financial difficulties as a result of
deployments or other military related hardships. Those who've been active duty
within the past 36 months could qualify. By providing urgent grants to military
families, VFW Unmet Needs is able to see that military families are able to cope
during an already emotionally strenuous time.
