You served your country, and in the process you were injured. It could be a bad back. It could be loss of limb. Or maybe you're not sure if you're entitled to any government benefits. American Legion service officers file thousands of VA claims each year on behalf of America's veterans. And the Legion's Benefits Calculator can help you prepare to file a claim.
The American Legion Claims Coach is a handy, secure organizational tool to help veterans and their service officers get through the VA benefits claim filing process.
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.
