By learning about the various programs offered through the VA, you can help Veterans and their spouses access important healthcare benefits, help pay for long term care, and help them understand how to obtain critical disability benefits if they were disabled as a result of their service.

This 3-hour recorded webinar covers a number of benefits provided by the VA Benefits Administration and the VA Health Care Administration. If you are looking to satisfy your 3-hour CLE requirement as an accredited attorney, we’ve got you covered.
