Wounded Warrior Project Helps Local Warriors with VA Benefit Compensation

SAN ANTONIO, March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Veterans with service-related health issues were recently invited to a Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Benefits Claims Day. This innovative gathering helps warriors quickly obtain needed care by placing them face-to-face with a WWP staff member and a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) representative, who directly impacts the outcome of medical claims.

With long-term financial and health support playing a critical, empowering role in the recovery process, WWP's Benefits Service program helps injured veterans navigate the complexities of the Department of Defense and VA. With the support of generous donors, WWP reaches out to local communities, filing thousands of claims each year and immediately changing the lives of injured veterans, their families, and caregivers.

"I had been out of the military for about three years when a friend of mine told me to have Wounded Warrior Project help file a claims package to increase my health benefits percentage," said U.S. Army veteran Alexander Garcia. "Within a couple of days, the VA received and began to process my paperwork."

As a VA-accredited organization, WWP works individually with warriors to understand their unique needs, provide information on the claims process, advise them of benefit options, file benefit claims, and help obtain necessary evidence. The staff stays connected with these injured veterans through the entire claims life cycle.

"My benefits percentage was raised due to the competence and knowledge of the Wounded Warrior Project benefits service representative who handled my claim," Alexander said. "A large amount of stress was removed from me and my family. Now, I can seek medical treatment at the VA and not worry about the financial burden that comes with attending all my necessary appointments.

Benefits Claims Day is gaining traction across the nation as an innovative collaboration between WWP and VA. The success of the WWP Benefits Service program lies in its efforts to ensure claims are filed and processed correctly – the first time.
