VA Disability Claims

Seeking disability compensation is often a historically difficult task. We provide assistance to our student Veterans and their families through education, advocacy and referrals. With several of our staff members as Veterans themselves, we have an intimate and accurate knowledge of the process. As our students and military affiliated families of students feel free to contact us if we can help with any of the following:

  • Any information as to the process of filing
  • Viability of claims
  • Questions about entitlement
  • Initial Claims
  • Appeals
  • VSO Referrals
  • Increases
  • VA Disability related benefits
  • Our own campus services to assist Veterans- Disabled Students Programs & Services (DSPS)

Veterans Readiness and Employment 

(VR&E, CH31, formerly Vocational Rehabilitation)

The Veterans Readiness and Employment is an incredible educational program designed to assist or supplement Veterans educational needs. VR&E benefits are not an entitlement based solely on time in service and discharge but more of a training and rehabilitation program. It has been successfully utilized by Veterans Center staff members in the pursuit of Bachelors and Masters Degrees following their post 9/11 allotment. As our students and military affiliated families of students feel free to contact us if we can help with any of the following:

  • Any information as to the process and best time to apply for VR&E Benefits
  • Assistance with the application process
  • Assistance with the enrollment process

VA and non-VA affiliated Health Services

Military service often leaves many of us with wear on our bodies and on our minds. For assistance with VA and non-VA related health services let us know how we can help. We offer assistance and referrals to the following services:

  • VA Mental Health processes, expectations and referrals
  • Non VA Mental Health referrals (To include our on Campus Programs)
  • Referrals for VA, Non VA medical care and treatment

 

Non-VA Veterans Benefits

There are a lot of benefits for Veterans and their families that are not directly affiliated with VA. These include Calvet, Local Non-Profits and Veterans organizations such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Feel free to contact us with any general inquiries and we’d be happy to connect with you about the benefits you may be eligible for. 

 

Feel free to contact us if you have General Questions as well. We have several Veterans on staff who have recently completed their journey using post 9/11 GI Bill. We have families, friends and are members of the Veteran community ourselves.
