Introduction to Veteran County, State, and Federal Benefits

Introduction to Veteran County, State, and Federal Benefits



From: May 26, 2020 at 9:00am to: 1:00pm

Trainer(s): Rafael Lozano, WDVA Outreach & Community Partnerships

Details: Did you know that the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA) is a full-service state agency that assists veterans, their family members and survivors? The department is an advocate for Veterans and their families, and aggressively pursues all county, state and federal benefits and entitlements on their behalf. One of the most common issues preventing Veterans from pursuing benefits, is a lack of knowledge on benefits and entitlements that are available. This training will be provided online as a webinar in the interest of health and safety. Learning will include lecture, powerpoint slides, online interaction, and information about tools and activities to use on your own after the training.
