Survivor Benefits:

In an effort to provide information to survivors of Veterans regarding the benefits they may have available to them, we created a Suvivor Benefits Brochure, which contains several key facts to get you started.  If you would like to see the brochure, click here.

Chapters and States can order copies of the borchure in packets of 25 for your members or your events.  Simply contact the National Membership Department at membership@vva.org, and request a specific number; give your name, chapter# or state, and a valid mailing address. 


In an effort to support and provide educational materials to the families of veterans and military concerning the benefits available to them through the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Associates of Vietnam Veterans of America has created a program focused on bringing awareness to what is currently available to the spouse, widow, widower, and family of the veteran. Federal benefits are constant for everyone; state-funded benefits can vary. With that in mind, this program is designed to be implemented at the state and chapter levels where family members can be contacted.

This community event can be very successful if carefully planned and advertised. This program is only available through our website. Included in this program are all the tools needed to plan and execute your seminar. For the immediate future, we will be updating and adding to this program.

FIRST:

Read the Benefits Program Outline for details on setting up your seminar, and follow the steps there.

NEXT:

Print out your Seminar Packet, which contains all of your handouts and samples.

ALSO:

Open the two documents linked to below. The PSA sample is a microsoft word document and the flyer is a fillable PDF document. Download/save them to your computer hard drive, or your tablet, and add your information to personalize the flyer and PSA to suit your chapter or state organization's information: Date, time, presenter, chapter # etc.

Sample Flyer  (You can fill this out on your computer and print to hand out and post, or you can create one of your own)

Sample PSA (Public Service Announcement) (Your browser may simply download this packet without a noticable instruction. Check the folder that your downloads save to after clicking this link.)

This program will be of great benefit to all of our members, and even to others in our community, such as the families of veterans of the more recent conflicts. Perhaps most especially of value to the younger veterans and their families, because their sources of information are limited. We can be their source and lend the support they have earned.

If you have questions about this program, please contact:

There may be more information added at a later time, so please stay in contact with this website.
