Dept of Veterans Affairs Benefits
These sites deal with the Department of Veterans Affairs. Remember to always work with your County Veteran Service Officer (CVSO) or your American Legion/VFW Posts service officer/advocate as they will assist you in properly filling out and filing your paperwork. To follow up on your Claim Status, Disability Benefits or GI Bill you may call the VA at 1-800-827-1000 as they suggest. Just know this call will go to one of 5 national call centers, not your local VA Office where you may have filed your claim. They will only have what the national database has which may not be up to date. To schedule an in person or online appointment with the Indianapolis VA Regional Office click on this link https://vets.force.com/VAVERA/s/ and fill out the form. They will email you a scheduled appointment date and time.
