No. Each Veteran Service office is funded by the county so there is never a fee for the advice or assistance with VA paperwork.
The VA has several types of claims a Veteran or eligible family member may apply for. This may be a claim for an injury sustained in service, a condition a Veteran has now due to service (such as from exposure to toxins), enrollment into VA health care, assistance with burial after a Veteran passes, application for aid and attendance for those who need assistance with activities of daily living, a monthly pension for those Veterans who are low income, education, life insurance, and Colorado State benefits.
Currently we may take appointments by phone, in-person and on-line though WebEx or Microsoft Teams.
It is helpful if you have the Veteran's: full name, branch of service, dates of service, birthday, social security number (as this will be come the claim number for any/all claims) and mailing address and phone number. A Veteran’s DD214/discharge paper is helpful as well. Also, have a list of questions and concerns.
Call our office and speak to one of our Veteran Services officers and we can discuss in detail what the best option is for you.
Not until the appeal is complete. This is because if a person changes POA during an appeal, it goes to the back of the line and delays the appeal decision considerably.
Give your new county Veteran Service Officer a call with your new contact and mailing address letting the office know you would like to continue representation with their new county.
