The American Legion's Claims Coach app is featured in a story on Military.com.
The app, available for both iPhone and Android users, provides step-by-step guidance to help veterans and their families connect with a service officer and navigate the VA claims process. The free app features a nationwide directory of accredited American Legion service officers, a built-in organizer for appointments, documents and deadlines, and a wealth of other resources. Additionally, a personal secure file called "My Checklist" keeps everything in order, from the initial meeting with a service officer through VA's decision and appeal, if necessary.
The app does not replace personal contact with service officers; it helps streamline the filing process and helps veterans make the most of time with their service officers.
