“Your Service. Our Mission: Bringing Benefits Home” - VA Presumptive Conditions Campaign Event
VA and Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Red Cliff Community Health Center
Host Presumptive Conditions Event “Your Service. Our Mission: Bringing Benefits Home” Campaign
Focused on identifying and assisting Veterans across Northern Wisconsin’s Tribes who may have presumptive disabilities and are eligible for a VA pension claim. A presumptive disability is a condition that VA presumes are related to military service, although the condition may first appear after discharge from the military. In addition, spouses may be eligible for Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) when a veteran dies as a result of these presumptive disabilities. During the event, health information and other benefits will be available provided by the Red Cliff’s, Bayfield County’s, Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council’s and Neighboring Community Outreach Services. VA will also have staff on hand to review claims on the spot, with the goal of completing the claim same day.
THE CLINIC IS FREE AND LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED.
