The Arkansas Department of Veterans Affairs (ADVA) issued a caution to veterans today in an effort to prevent them from paying for benefits assistance.
According to the agency, there is a growing trend of individuals and businesses charging veterans to help them apply for various VA benefits, including filing disability claims.
“There are veterans paying large sums of money for services that, because of their military service, should not cost them a dime,” said ADVA Chief of Claims and Appeals Tony Gordon. “Navigating the benefits system can be challenging but our service officers are accredited to assist veterans in doing so, one-on-one and free of cost.”
According to Gordon, each county has its own service officer, normally located in the county courthouse. A complete list of county veteran service officers and their contact information can be viewed at www.veterans.arkansas.gov.
