About ABA VCAN
Even as the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) works to process claims for a record number of veterans each year, it is experiencing an unprecedented increase in the number of claims from veterans, and many of our nation's veterans--who have been wounded and disabled as a result of their military service--must wait too long to receive the compensation benefits they have earned and deserve.
You, as a lawyer, can now help veterans receive their benefits, by helping veterans submit correct evidence to substantiate their claims for VA disability benefits. The American Bar Association Veterans' Claims Assistance Network (ABA VCAN), in close coordination with the VA, will connect veterans currently in the backlog with the opportunity to work with legal service providers and lawyers who will help the veterans complete their claims packages for expedited review by the VA--at no cost to the veteran.
Join our volunteer roster today, and you will be contacted about veterans in need of assistance with their claims when our case referral system launches in the coming months. While waiting for case referrals, you will be contacted about no-cost CLE courses that will teach you how to prepare veterans' claims, and you will receive instruction on how to become VA accredited to handle these claims.
