    Hello,

    My wife and I recently admitted her mother to an assited living home due to her diminishing health. She is eligible for veteran benefits because her husband served in WW2. My wife has contacted the local VA office 7 times by phone and visited the office in person once to aquire an application. Everytime she asks for an application, she is told it has to be mailed and she will receive the application at the end of the week. It has been 3 months now. She has tried alternative contacts and she is always referred to same man that keeps giving her the run around.

    My wife and I would like to know, if any, of other methods in dealing with VA benefits? Is there a different contact? Can we print the application from the web site and send it in? etc.

    Any information would very helpful.

    Thank You

    Kryplor

    Get in touch with one of the service organizations ie DAV, VFW, AL or if your County has a Vets Service Officer, they all should be able to help you. I'm sure someone else will be along soon and give you more advice. Sgt D

    Sgt D gives you good advice. The service orgs know the ropes and can really make life easy for you but you can apply either on line via VONAPP if you want to do it yourself by submitting an application via the mail Here's a link to an application: VA Form 21-526 Veteran’s Application for Compensation and/or Pension http://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/21-526.pdf

    Here's a link to VONAPP. You can fill out and submit the 21-526 electronically. http://vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp/main.asp


    You don't need to go this alone. Every Veterans Service Organization (VSO) and some States and Counties have VA certified Service Officers (SO's) that will assist veterans and their spouses with presenting their claims. Call The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), the American Legion (AL), the American Red Cross (ARC), the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Military Order of the Purple Heart (MoPH) or any of the other hundreds of organizations and ask for help filing a claim. It's free and you don't have to be a member.

    One thing to remember is that all SO's are not cut from the same cloth. Choosing one is pretty much a crap shoot unless you get personal recommendations in your area from other vets. SO's can be both good and bad depending on the individual SO. Talk to several, find out which ones return your calls and are available when you call them. Most of the major Veterans Service Organizations have training programs but not all require it. In the end, find someone you can work with.

    DON'T TRY TO DO THIS ON YOUR OWN! YOU CAN GET FREE PROFESSIONAL HELP!

    I see people every day that apply for benefits and get denied. You need to access a VA specialist who is trained to take Veterans and their families through this process. It is VERY complicated and the VA WILL NOT give you all the details you need!!! The likelihood that you will be denied if you apply on your own is high. Contact Kevin Brennan today, and he can assist you at NO CHARGE! He has helped many clients get approved that, had they applied on their own, would certainly have been denied.

    You can get more information on Aid and Attendance at www.veteransinfocenter.org or call Kevin today at 913-649-0073.

    DON'T LOSE OUT ON YOUR BENEFITS BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T BEEN PROPERLY INFORMED!!

    Thị trường hàng xách tay nhập khẩu rất sôi động, đặc biệt là vào cuối năm.
    Không còn len lỏi trong những ngõ nhỏ để bán vài món mỹ phẩm, quần áo…, cửa hàng bán hàng xách tay những năm gần đây mọc lên như nấm ở những phố trung tâm Hà Nội. Nhiều cửa hàng dù chỉ có vài chục mét vuông cũng trương biển "Siêu thị hàng xách tay" để thu hút người tiêu dùng, với sản phẩm từ cuộn giấy vệ sinh đến những lọ nước hoa, thuốc đông y... Chuộng nhất vẫn là hàng xuất xứ từ các nước châu Âu (Pháp, Đức), Nhật, Hàn Quốc...

    Thị trường cũng rất nhiều loại, nếu bạn muốn hàng Đức chuẩn tốt nhất là vào website http://hangxachtayduc365.com/
