Officials from the West Virginia Department of Veterans Assistance (WVDVA) are scheduled to visit Braxton, Clay and Webster counties In October.
A WVDVA Veterans Service Officer and a Veterans Social Worker will be on hand to provide guidance to veterans who wish to file for federal or state benefits, such as federal VA pensions or service-connected disabilities. Widows’ pensions and VA home loans are among other potential benefits.
“We want to make sure that veterans across West Virginia understand that our offices will do everything within our power to help them,” said WVDVA Deputy Secretary Billy Wayne Bailey. “Our service officers and social workers help connect veterans with resources in such areas as education, finances, housing, employment, counseling and more.”
Sessions are conducted on a first-come, first-serve basis, but calling ahead of time is encouraged. For more information, call 304-872-0829.
