Service connected veteran appointment at a VA Clinic for compensation examination .AmI authorized travel reimburshment.?
If you travel at your own expense greater than 30 miles each direction to the exam location, you can request and receive mileage reimbursement from the VA. In many areas, y…ou can also contact the VA or DAV for transportation to the appointment.
yes. there is no statue of limitations on how long you have to file between discharge and filing for benefits. I'll be honest though the average appeal review alone is over 49…3 days (according to the VA), and they like to deny you then you have to appeal and you may not be alive when the decision finally comes your way. You need to be prepared to be denied and to have to fight tooth and nail for what you are entitled too.
Can being discharged from the army for mental reasons before 180 days of service disqualify a person from having veterans benefits?
It would depend on whether or not the mental (or medical) reason(s) for discharge are service connected. If the V.A. determines that the reasons are service connected, then yo…u should still be able to obtain veterans benefits. You may also qualify for some services from the V.A. even if your disability isn't service connected, but these are decided on case by case.
People Search, Facebook, Myspace... there is no way to do it through the Department of Veterans' Affairs, unless you have good reason (law enforcement, government agencies, et…c).
No, it may not be considered a scam in the literal sense of the word, but read on. AAWV is an organization that claims to educate vets on available government benefits for whi…ch they may be eligible to help defray the costs of assisted living, nursing home, or home health care. Their "Professional Members", those who go out to various senior communities and pitch their services, offer to help eligible veterans apply for the VA Aid & Attendance Improved Pension. The AAWV is affiliated with an financial services company. They claim they "help" veterans for "free". The only way their "Professional Members" get paid, however, is through commissions generated by insurance sales to veterans for annuities and life insurance they may not want or need. In fact, the organization is really looking for "over-resourced" veterans, i.e., those that have too much in assets and income to qualify. They encourage veterans who are so over-resourced to transfer assets out of their estate to their children. They then tell the children they "should" by an annuity. Commissions on these annuities, depending on their duration, can be up to 14%. This commission is split with the financial services company associated with AAWV. Does this constitute a scam, simply unethical behavior, neither, or perhaps something even more egregious? The above are not true statements During the past 8 years AAWV we have built our reputation on educating and helping thousands of veterans and their families on the Aid & Attendance program. Our Professional Members do not charge for their services. 80% of all families we see meet the VA asset requirement and do not require financial planning. The remaining 20% that may require some financial planning are never placed in high risk - high commission products. Go to the discussion page as The first"answer" is anything but accurate.

NO! HR 4667 was signed by the president, however, HR 4667 only ties VA disability cola to social security cola. This formula uses the CPI (consumer price index) to rate inflat…ion and give a cola. Unfortunately, there will not be an increase for 2010 or 2011. There were rumors and a hoax email going around saying HR 4667 called for a massive increase. This was not true and proved cruel.
The veterans are former army members.
A "veteran" is anyone who has served in the Armed Forces of a particular country. Being a non-combatant is not a consideration.

In war the U.S. army is like anything you have seen in a movie but there is no romance or anything like that
In US Army
Depends how long. If you served 180 days or more of active duty, yes.
apparently not. Im 60%, was in economic hardship deferment which I had to fight NELNET OVER, when I was upgraded. I was living onstreets of SAN DIEGO at the time and my VA dra…ft(post911) did not cease until recently. ACCOUNTS STILL in collections by NELNET affiliates who seem to play GOD once the 'account transferred to GOVT for collections', even if done so unlawfully. I am not obligated to repay according to the loan calculator, nor am I able. NELNET wants 300+ /mo which was NEVER agreed to, even when IN service.
Not unless you have been injured during active duty (combat injury), and not until you are honorably discharged.
