New veteran center opens in New Jersey

NAELA National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Inc. MEMBER

Veterans in Bergen and Passaic counties may have heard the good news. A new satellite Vet Center just opened up in the borough in Oakland. The new veteran center was announced during the recent New Jersey Veterans Appreciation Gala.

The center will be helping veterans seek jobs, counseling, education, as well as assist them in seeking disability benefits. The center will be a place where veterans can get assistance in seeking help when navigating both federal and state systems available to them. It is hoped that the center can help alleviate the nearly 10 percent unemployment rates of New Jersey's veterans.

The gala, which took place at the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Wyckoff, hoped to raise money and awareness for veterans while thanking them for time served. Lately, the Department of Veterans Affairs has been focusing on veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The counseling and educational programs provided are geared towards helping the veterans returning from combat zones readjust from having served overseas. Helping the veterans and their families reconnect and return home as seamlessly as possible is one of the center's primary goals. Part of that reentering into society involves helping those veterans apply for and receive the disability and veteran benefits available to them.

If you are a veteran that would like some assistance in applying for the benefits that you served and sacrificed for, an attorney who practices in veteran's benefits can help. Their knowledge and skills in dealing with veteran issues can assist in guiding your through the process.
