VETERANS BENEFITS EVENT TO BE HELD AT VA CLINIC IN LOCKPORT

Veterans can learn about their VA health care benefits at an upcoming enrollment event taking place Friday, September 19, 2014 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the VA Lockport Clinic, 5883 Snyder Drive, Lockport, NY.

Staff and Veterans benefits counselors will assist veterans with eligibility for VA health care, and other state and federal benefits that veterans may have coming to them that often go unused.
 
VA health care benefits are available for Veterans returning from combat that includes five years of free medical care for most conditions from the Department of Veterans Affairs.  The five year window is also open to activated Reservists and members of the National Guard, if they served in a theater of combat operations after November 11, 1998 and were discharged under other than dishonorable conditions.The five year limit has no effect upon veterans with medical conditions related to their military service.  Veterans may apply at any time after their discharge from the military, even decades later for medical care for service-connected health issues. 

Flu vaccines will be offered at no cost to Veterans enrolled in VA health care.

Bring discharge papers and 2013 financial information for proper benefits counseling. 

For more information, you may contact the VA clinic in Lockport at 438-3890.
