What resources are available to help me?
While VCAN is no longer accepting cases, there are other programs and resources that can help you:
For VA benefits claims, you may contact a VA-recognized Veterans Services Organization (VSO) that can help you for free throughout the entire claims process. Visit https://www.ebenefits.va.gov/, click on "Need help? Appoint a claims agent, attorney, or Veteran Service Organization (VSO) to assist you."
If you are seeking legal assistance from an attorney to appeal a VA decision on your benefits claims or if you are facing other legal problems, visit the Directory of Programs on ABA Home Front to find a state-by-state guide of local legal resources available in your community.
You can also visit Stateside Legal, which provides: legal information and resources important to the rights and benefits of individuals with military service, as well as their families and caregivers; a national directory (searchable by state or zip code) of free and low-cost legal service providers, state agencies, law school clinics and other resources; and specialized information and resources for advocates and attorneys who want to help veterans, servicemembers and their families.
If you are an active-duty servicemember, visit the ABA Military Pro Bono Project to learn about your eligibility and how to seek a referral.
