    Product Description


    Note: Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this program has been rescheduled and is now available online only as a live or recorded webcast.

    This training is for legal services advocates, lawyers in private practice, social and health services workers, veterans, lay advocates, legislative aides, and anyone else who wants to learn about the basics of state and federal veterans’ benefits. The training covers state veterans’ benefits under M.G.L. c. 115 (administered by the Massachusetts Department of Veterans' Services), and federal benefits for healthcare, service-connected disability compensation, and non-service-connected pensions (administered by the U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs). The session covers the basic application process, eligibility rules for veterans (military discharge status, financial eligibility, disqualifying conditions, refund status) and the disability requirements for benefits. It also covers the basics of filing an appeal and upgrading a less than honorable discharge. This training will cover some recent policy changes in how veterans benefits programs are administered in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
