DAV has served the forgotten warriors of this nation for 93 years. The backbone of our service is representing veterans of all conflicts to obtain benefits from the VA they are entitled to as part of the covenant for their military service. The DAV in 2013 represented over 5,000 veterans and dependents in Massachusetts. The results of this representation amounted to $105,144, 548.00 in benefits. All of our services are free.
How Do I File My VA Claim?
There are multiple ways to file a claim with the Veterans Administration.
You can go to their website www.va.gov and click on Benefits. Their prompts will then assist you on filing a claim.
