(July 12, 2010)--Military veterans who are UTSA students can file claims for benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs at Student Health Services in Recreation and Wellness Center Room 1.500 on the Main Campus from 8:30 a.m. to noon, Friday, July 16.

If there is a significant response, regular visits will be scheduled. The DAV service officers are housed at an Eckert Road office and provide assistance with claims for benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Department of Defense and other government agencies. Veterans need not be DAV members to take advantage of the assistance, which is provided free of charge.

NSOs function as attorneys-in-fact, assisting veterans and their families in filing claims for VA disability compensation and pension; vocational rehabilitation and employment; education; home loan guaranty; life insurance; death benefits; health care and more.

They provide free services such as information seminars, counseling and community outreach. NSOs also represent veterans and active-duty military personnel before discharge review boards, boards for correction of military records, physical evaluation boards and other official panels.
