As part of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) efforts to provide veterans with complete access to their veterans’ disability benefits, 8.5 million handbooks are scheduled to be mailed out by year’s end.
Starting this month the VA will be mailing out personalized benefit handbooks to all veterans enrolled in the VA health care system. Each book will provide individual details about a veterans’ applicable benefits, local VA health care facilities, contact information for support services, and co-pay information.
The handbooks will provide a comprehensive resource for each veteran’s personal health needs and ways for them to access the benefits and resources they are entitled to. The handbook program applies to all currently enrolled veterans, as well as newly enrolled veterans. Those already enrolled with their veterans’ disability benefits will receive an updated handbook if there are ever changes to their benefits.
If you have not yet applied for veterans disability benefits or enrolled in the VA health care system you need to act quickly. Veterans’ disability claims can take months, even years to be approved, leaving you to struggle with health care on your own during the wait.
If you are a disabled veteran who has been denied disability compensation or have not yet applied for benefits from the VA, a South Florida disability attorney from Veterans Help Group is ready to help.
