quality of life.
Welcome to VetsHQ, an online community for America’s servicemen and women. VetsHQ provides a variety of services to help meet your individual needs. Here, you will find information from experts and your fellow veterans about employment opportunities, retirement planning, how to work with the Veterans Administration, benefits available to veterans, and much more. VetsHQ’s Claims Management Services Center will help you identify what benefits you might qualify for and give you free access to the information you will need in order to prepare and file your claim for benefits with the VA. Based on your answers to a short questionnaire, VetsHQ will generate a tailored list of benefits for which you may qualify. Should you decide to file a claim, VetsHQ will provide links to the necessary forms, which you can fill out and submit, either electronically or by mail. It is important to understand that you are responsible for preparing and filing your own claims for benefits. But VetsHQ will give you the tools you need to take the next step and will identify accredited organizations that provide free legal services should you require additional, individualized assistance.
