VA disability compensation offers a monthly tax free payment to veterans who became sick or injured while serving in the military and to veterans whose service made an existing condition worse. However, many veterans fail to apply for their benefits.
Join Heather Walrath from Navy Mutual for a virtual workshop that will navigate the basics of the VA claim process and provide a better understanding of the value of the tax-free benefits for the veteran and their family. We will also explain what is needed to file a claim and the benefits of working with a VSO.
Topics Included cover:
- Finding and working with a VSO
- What is needed to file a claim
- How total disability rating is determined
- Other VA benefits that may be available
Two sessions are offered on March 9th, 12PM or 6PM. You can decide which session works best for your schedule. Military Spouses encouraged to attend!
