Veterans of our military branches who are considered disabled due to injuries or illnesses related to their service to our country are often entitled to veterans disability benefits. The processes to get these benefits can often be complicated and frustrating, however.
Many veterans require assistance wading through the legal red tape of veterans disability benefits and luckily for veterans in Central Texas, that help is coming to them this week. Reports indicate the Killeen Heights Vet Center is sending a mobile unit to different communities in our region over the next several days to get disabled veterans in rural areas the assistance they need with disability claims.
According to the Waco Tribune, the first stop is at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 17, at the Mexia Peer Support Center. Then, the unit will move on to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency facility in Marlin, Texas. Stops are also scheduled in Copperas Cove, Lampasas, and Mills County throughout the remainder of the week.
In addition to the free counseling sessions, information will be distributed encouraging individuals to utilize other benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, we are aware of how confusing the veterans disability processes and laws can be. That’s why our College Station personal injury lawyers encourage all veterans to consider attending one of the free upcoming counseling sessions in Central Texas.
