Service Benefit Program

     The V.V.A. Service Benefit Program in the state of Michigan was originally established to assist Vietnam veterans and their families.  After further consideration the program was opened up to include all U.S. veterans and their eligible family members from WWII to the present.  "Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another" is the V.V.A. motto which we take very seriously.   

     Our small dedicated group of five accredited service officers includes Army, Navy and Marine veterans, two women and three men.  We have brought in over $7 million dollars in recoveries for veterans and their families from January - July 2019.  These recoveries include compensation, pension, educational, burial and DIC survivor benefits.

     Working together with the Michigan Veterans Coalition and multiple counties we are able to reach veterans throughout the state and represent them in receiving their earned benefits from the VA.
