                                                                           Veterans Benefits Events
                                         For Niagara County Veterans at VA Lockport & Niagara Falls Clinics

VA Western New York Healthcare System will host two Veterans benefits events in Niagara County to provide information about VA health care and other Veterans benefits.  The first event will be held at VA Lockport’s CBOC from 1pm-4pm at 5883 Snyder Drive on Friday, October 14. The VA Niagara Falls CBOC will be at 2201 Pine Avenue from 1pm-4pm, Thursday, October 27, 2016.  The good news for enrollment eligible Veterans is that VA health care coverage meets the Affordable Care Act’s health care standards. VA’s Mobile Vets Center will be stationed for assistance at both Open Houses.

New Veterans seeking enrollment and access to VA health care are encouraged to bring their DD-214 discharge papers, and tax information from 2015.  Veterans will have the opportunity to enroll in VA health care and receive additional information about other Veterans benefits to include compensation, pension, employment, educational opportunities and more!  Both clinics will also provide flu vaccines and take photos for VA identification cards for eligible Veterans.

For more information about these events, please call (716) 438-3890 for VA Lockport CBOC or (716) 862-858o for Niagara Falls CBOC.
