VETERANS’ CORNER: VA moves to expedite veterans’ claims

(Continued)

While compensation claims are pending, eligible veterans are able to receive health care and other benefits from the VA. Veterans who have served in recent conflicts are eligible for five years of free health care from the VA. Currently, 55 percent of returning Iraq and Afghanistan veterans are using VA health care, a rate of utilization greater than previous generations of veterans.

To learn more about disability benefits go to www.ebenifits.va.gov/ebenefits-portal.

Jim Vines is commander of AmVets Post 133.
