In a recent needs and assessment survey conducted by VConnections, many veterans had questions regarding their eligibility for various types of claims. Questions such as:
- I was only on active duty for one year, am I eligible for benefits?
Of course, the answers will depend on the surrounding circumstances. Not all benefits require a 3-4 year minimum tour. We will leverage our partnerships with VA Affairs and local resources to facilitate workshops with onsite experts to help our southern Maryland veterans have a better understanding of which claims should be filed to receive the benefits they deserve.
