Important Information for Veterans

How can an Accredited Claims Agent help me?
Accredited Claims agents work independently to represent you as an individual, with the time and resources to devote to your case, with empathy and dedication to help veterans be well.
President Lincoln, during his Second Inaugural Address, declared that as a nation our pursuit is, "To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan".
The United States has the most comprehensive system of assistance for veterans of any nation in the world. The mission of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is to fulfill President Lincoln’s promise by serving and honoring the men and women who are America’s veterans.
In order to find competent representation, a veteran can seek help through a service organization within the VA, such as the American Legion, local VFWs, AMVETS, ect. Unfortunately, these organizations, although dedicated, do not have an infinite number of Veterans Services Officers (VSOs) to address the over load of complex cases. Often they do not have ample resources to process and develop all claims. Another alternative is to seek counsel from a VA Accredited lawyer, but that can be costly for a veteran who is already in need.
Veterans can feel safe telling their story to another veteran who has seen and been through some of the same suffering and pain. We can offer that same empathy and caring consideration.
