ABA Veterans' Claims Assistance Network

ABA VCAN provides veterans and volunteer attorneys with the opportunity to work together to prepare and complete the veterans' disability benefits claims for submission to the VA.



The American Bar Association Veterans Claims Assistance Network (ABA VCAN) is providing unrepresented veterans who need help preparing initial benefits claim packages with the opportunity to work with lawyers who will help the veterans assemble their claim submissions as Fully Developed Claims (FDCs) for expedited rating decisions by the VA—at no cost to the veterans.

The ABA, along with Holland & Knight law firm, sponsored a free 3.0 hour CLE program on preparation of VA benefits claims on May 15, 2018. Click here to view the recording of the training. Note that viewing the recording after May 15 will still qualify for VA accreditation, but it may not qualify for state MCLE credit. If you wish to claim MCLE credit, you will have to work directly with your state entity; the ABA cannot submit the credit for you.
