I’m a Disabled Veteran… What Programs Are Available to Help Me?

First, a question for you: have you applied for VA Disability? Many veterans with service-connected disabilities never apply for VA Disability, and as a result they are not eligible for the programs specifically created for disabled veterans. If you do have service-connected disability and would like to apply, we recommend working with one of the service officers below:

American Legion Veteran Service Officer (Office at White River Junction)     (802) 296-5166

Disabled American Veterans Veteran Service Officer (Office at White River Junction)     (802) 296-5167

Vietnam Veterans of America (Various Locations Statewide)     (603) 283-3164

State of Vermont Veteran Service Officer Program (Travels Statewide)     (888) 666-9844
