National Service Officers
One of the most important services AMVETS offers to veterans of all eras, is direct representation when they file for benefits with the VA. At no cost to the veteran, an AMVETS National Service Officer will sit down with a veteran, review his or her records and help them navigate the complex process of filing claims and appeals to VA. Often AMVETS service officers are conveniently located at VA Regional Offices. Again, this is a 100% FREE service.
In 2011, AMVETS National Service Officers filed more than 93,000 claims, appeals and benefits delivery at discharge (BDD), and helped to recover more than $648 million for veterans and their families. Click here for more information, or to locate an AMVETS service officer near you.
