Overview of Veteran’s Benefits

This training is designed for social service professionals new to the VA benefit system. We will review the overall structure of the VA Benefits and Healthcare systems and focus on programs most commonly accessed by New York's low-income veteran population. We will cover the major VA income benefits available, eligibility requirements, and interactions with other benefits systems. We will also cover military discharges and how they affect service members' access to both benefits and healthcare. Case examples, other resources, and practical advocacy tips will be included. Cost of workshop is $50.00. Online registration required at: http://benefitsplus.cssny.org/home/training
