Disabled veterans in El Paso find it particularly troubling to get the assistance they need. Many cannot work, yet are not able to get approved for disability. The process takes help from a professional to make a claim go through. Collaborate with a local, state, or national organization to get the assistance you need when filing benefit claims or locating other beneficial resources. El Paso offers plenty.
The El Paso VA Health Care System sits at 5001 N Piedras St. You can stop in between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday to discuss treatment options or ask about assistance with filing claims. A health care worker can offer you helpful resources to find you what you need.
The El Paso Vet Center is one of the best options in the city for finding help with filing benefits claims, obtaining housing information, or locating other resources. Visit the Center at 1155 Westmoreland Suite 121 or give them a call at 915-772-0013 to learn more. They open at 8 am and stay open until 7 pm Tuesday through Friday, and 4:30 pm on Mondays. The facility also opens for a few hours on Saturday to give people the chance to come in on a weekend if they cannot make it during the week.
The Texas Veterans Commission focused on veterans of the Indian wars, the Spanish-American War, and World War I when it first got established. Now any veterans of war can get assistance through this organization. A claims representative can guide you on filing for benefits, or you can seek employment services.
Veterans of Foreign Wars is a nationally-recognized organization with chapters in El Paso. In fact, there are seven different locations in the area that you can use to your advantage. The VFW posts located nearby each offer different meeting times where you can socialize with others or ask questions regarding claims, housing, health care, and more. Attend one meeting or go to them all to get what you need out of the equation.
