American Legion Claims Coach
by: The American Legion NHQ • 6
The American Legion Claims Coach provides U.S. military veterans and their families with step-by-step guidance to assist in the process of filing claims for government benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. This app features a comprehensive directory of accredited American Legion service officers, searchable by ZIP Code. The app has a built-in organizer to help veterans and their families keep track of appointments, documents, and deadlines. The built-in organizer, “My Checklist,” can easily be e-mailed and printed directly from the app, which also includes a glossary of VA terms, frequently asked questions, helpful filing tips, links to valuable resources and bulletins about benefits.
The American Legion Claims Coach is an organizational tool to help veterans, their families and service officers ease the process of VA benefits application. The app does not replace personal contact with service officers, but it can help veterans understand the often-complicated process, gather the right documentation for meetings and map out the steps in the journey from VA claims application through decision. The app does not automatically set appointments for the user, nor does it directly file forms with VA. The Claims Coach is designed purely to serve as an educational and organizational tool to streamline the process and make the most of a veteran’s time with his or her service officer.
This app was developed by The American Legion, the nation’s largest organization of wartime veterans, with input from the Legion’s nationwide network of accredited service officers, whose educational programs, outreach efforts and advocacy are supported by The American Legion Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation Commission.
