There are many service organizations which can help you fill out VA forms, tell you about VA benefits, and also provide a wide range of help for veterans and their dependents.
There are both VA-recognized and non-recognized service organizations. A recognized organization can legally represent you before the Federal VA, while a non-recognized organization can provide you with information but cannot be your representative before the Federal VA.
You may choose any recognized organization to help you with a claim. Service organizations have trained personnel who can help you with your VA claim. Recognized service organizations may not charge for helping you with a VA claim and do not usually require you to be a member of that organization. However, if an organization’s help requires unusual expenses such as extensive photocopying, etc., you should inquire about its policies for reimbursement.
The WDVA also has trained personnel in our Claims office
co-located with the Federal VA Regional office in Milwaukeee, WI who can help.
