Veterans Administration Benefits

Homeless Veterans The first thing you want to do is reach out to the Veterans Administration. https://www.va.gov/HOMELESS/HUD-VASH.asp

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-VA Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) Program

HUD-VASH is a collaborative program between HUD and VA combines HUD housing vouchers with VA supportive services to help Veterans who are homeless, and their families find and sustain permanent housing.

Through public housing authorities, HUD provides rental assistance vouchers for privately owned housing to Veterans who are eligible for VA health care services and are experiencing homelessness. VA case managers may connect these Veterans with support services such as health care, mental health treatment and substance use counseling to help them in their recovery process and with their ability to maintain housing in the community. Among VA homeless continuum of care programs, HUD-VASH enrolls the largest number and largest percentage of Veterans who have experienced long-term or repeated homelessness. At the end of FY 2018, there were 85,509 Veterans with active HUD-VASH vouchers and 78,234 Veterans in housing with a HUD-VASH voucher.

HUD-VASH Eligibility Criteria

Veterans who are appropriate for this program must be VA health care eligible Veterans. VA eligibility makes this determination.

Veterans must also meet the definition of homelessness defined in The McKinney Homeless Assistance Act as amended by S. 896 The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act of 2009. HUD-VASH prioritizes the chronically homeless

Response Time and Checking the Status of a Request:

Response time varies and is dependent upon the complexity of your request, the availability of records and our workload.

Veteran Health Care

Find out how to apply for VA health care benefits as a Veteran or service member.

First of all, find our if you qualify. https://www.va.gov/health-care/eligibility/ 

If you qualify for VA health care, you’ll receive coverage for the services you need to help you get—and stay—healthy. 

What care and services does VA health care cover?

Each Veteran’s medical benefits package is unique. Yours will include care and services to help:

Treat illnesses and injuries

Prevent future health problems

Improve your ability to function

Enhance your quality of life

All Veterans receive coverage for most care and services, but only some will qualify for added benefits like dental care. The full list of your covered benefits depends on:

Your priority group, and

The advice of your VA primary care provider (your main doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician’s assistant), and

The medical standards for treating any health conditions you may have

Learn more about priority groups.

You should also know that being signed up for VA health care meets your Affordable Care Act (ACA) health coverage requirement of having “minimum essential health coverage.” We’ll update this site if the ACA changes with new laws. 

Learn more about the ACA, VA, and you. https://www.va.gov/health-care/about-va-health-benefits/ 

What if I’m just separating from active duty and don’t know where to start?

We can help you learn about and apply for VA health care benefits. A member of our Concierge for Care (C4C) team will call you soon after your separation from military service. We can answer any questions you may have, process your application over the phone, and help you schedule your first VA medical appointment. 

Learn about transitioning from TRICARE to VA health care.

You can find more information about transitioning here. https://www.va.gov/HEALTHBENEFITS/apply/active_duty.asp 

Can I get VA health care benefits?

You may be able to get VA health care benefits if you served in the active military, naval, or air service and didn’t receive a dishonorable discharge.

If you enlisted after September 7, 1980, or entered active duty after October 16, 1981, you must have served 24 continuous months or the full period for which you were called to active duty, unless any of the descriptions below are true for you.

This minimum duty requirement may not apply if any of these are true. You:

Were discharged for a disability that was caused—or made worse—by your active-duty service, or

Were discharged for a hardship or “early out,” or

Served prior to September 7, 1980

If you’re a current or former member of the Reserves or National Guard, you must have been called to active duty by a federal order and completed the full period for which you were called or ordered to active duty. If you had or have active-duty status for training purposes only, you don’t qualify for VA health care.

What should I do if I received an other than honorable, bad conduct, or dishonorable discharge?

If you’ve received one of these discharge statuses, you may not be eligible for VA benefits.

There are ways you can try to qualify:

1.  https://www.va.gov/discharge-upgrade-instructions/  

Apply for Health Care Benefits https://www.va.gov/health-care/apply/application/introduction 

These are things that could get your qualified.

Is there anything that will make me more likely to get these benefits?

Yes. You may qualify for enhanced eligibility status (meaning you’ll be placed in a higher priority group, which makes you more likely to get benefits) if you meet at least one of the requirements listed below.

At least one of these must be true. You:

Receive financial compensation (payments) from VA for a service-connected disability

Were discharged for a disability resulting from something that happened to you in the line of duty

Were discharged for a disability that got worse in the line of duty

Are a recently discharged combat Veteran

Get a VA pension

Are a former Prisoner of War (POW)

Have received a Purple Heart

Have received a Medal of Honor

Get (or qualify for) Medicaid benefits

Served in Vietnam between January 9, 1962, and May 7, 1975

Served in Southwest Asia during the Gulf War between August 2, 1990, and November 11, 1998

Served at least 30 days at Camp Lejeune between August 1, 1953, and December 31, 1987

If none of the above apply to you, you may still qualify for care based on your income. Learn more about how the amount of money your family makes can affect whether you qualify for VA benefits.

If you need help filing, there is help for you. 

What if I need help filling out my application?

You can get help in any of these ways:

Call our toll-free hotline at 1-877-222-VETS (1-877-222-8387), Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (ET). Request a representative for VA claims 

Get help from an accredited representative (a trained professional trusted to help with VA-related claims). https://www.ebenefits.va.gov/ebenefits/about/feature?feature=request-vso-representative&_ga=2.67027050.512862888.1552940446-1493362780.1552940446 

If you do not qualify for VA health care you could still receive some benefits, like PTSD or military sexual trauma https://www.va.gov/health-care/health-needs-conditions/mental-health/ptsd/#no-benefits 

https://www.va.gov/health-care/health-needs-conditions/mental-health/#no-benefits

If you’re a Veteran who has experienced MST, you can get help through VA. You don’t need to have a service-connected disability rating, and you may be able to get MST-related care even if you don’t qualify for other VA services. You also don’t need to have reported the MST or have other proof that it happened.

Here’s how to access VA services for MST:

If you have a VA primary care provider, talk to that professional about what you’ve been through. All our primary care providers are trained in MST and can help you figure out if you have related issues, like PTSD or depression. Your provider will offer treatment and support as needed.

If you don’t have a VA primary care provider, call your nearest VA medical center and ask to speak to the MST coordinator. You should feel free to ask for a provider of a specific gender if that makes you feel more comfortable.

Find a Location Near You https://www.va.gov/find-locations/ 

If you’d prefer to receive MST-related care outside of a medical setting, get free confidential counseling, alcohol and drug assessment, and other support at one of our 300 community Vet Centers.

Find a Vet Center near you.

If you’re homeless or at risk of becoming homeless:

Contact the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at 1-877-4AID-VET (1-877-424-3838) for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A trained VA counselor will offer information about VA homeless programs, health care, and other services in your area. The call is free and confidential.

Visit our website to learn about VA programs for Veterans who are homeless.

Learn about our homelessness programs.

Call or visit your local VA Community Resource and Referral Center. Even if you don’t qualify for VA health care, our staff can help you find non-VA resources you may qualify for in your community. 

Find your local Community Resource and Referral Center.

You can also call the VA general information hotline at 1-800-827-1000, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. (ET).

Rent A Vet Services, LLC™ Tucson Arizona Scott D. – Owner Army 1985-1991 520-252-9332

image29

 Rent A Vet Services, LLC™ was started in 2016 as a landscape/handyman service. Amy went back to school for accounting and business and one class stated to start a small business, so she came up with the idea for the least expensive home based business start up cost. She came up with the name of Rent A Vet and the ideal of hiring veterans. Scott thought we should of been called “Rent A Dude.”

In 2019 Amy shared ownership with Scott making it a Veteran Owned Business (he owns majority) which will open more doors for us with government projects.

We have continued to evolve as a business with the purpose of providing veteran households with an economic opportunity to succeed.  In March 2019 we became an ROC Contractor for home improvement.

Our long term vision is to have a training center where we can bring veterans who want to learn new skills, be their “own boss” and provide for their families by teaching them the skills they will need in order to become a part of a growing business in many areas of the country. We are hoping to one day be able to grow to other states and provide services to across the United States.

Chris Cobb isn’t an ordinary realtor.

Local Vail Resident Climbs High to Support Our Veterans

This coming May, local Vail resident, Chris Cobb, will be attempting to climb to the top of the world's highest mountain peak. Mt. Everest is located in Nepal, has a summit elevation of 29,029 ft., and is the highest peak in the world. We caught up with Chris to ask a few questions about the upcoming trip:

First question, have you always been crazy or is this a recent thing 

Ha! A little bit of crazy is okay, it's a lot of crazy that you have to worry about. I really enjoy doing new things, seeing new people, and doing extreme things. Life is short so I try to squeeze out as much as I can. If that's crazy, then yeah, I guess I am a little on the crazy side.

How long have you been climbing?

Honestly, I just climbed my first big mountain two years ago. I thought Everest would be a cool thing to add to my five-year goals so I called a guide company and asked for them to sign me up. I told them I'd never climbed a mountain before but that I was sure I'd be ok for the trip which was followed by laughter and a recommendation to climb a few others first before taking on the biggest mountain in the world. Since then I've trained on Mt. Erie , climbed Mt. Baker, Mt. Rainier twice, and then Denali(America's largest mountain). Now I've got Everest this coming may, it will take about two months.

What do you do for training?

In the morning around 5:30, my dog, one of my kids, and I go to Cienega High School. I wear a pack weighted down to about 80lbs and hit the bleachers. Then in the afternoon I alternate between weight training, pack training, and interval running. I also try to do some sort of climbing on the weekend. 

What is Fisher House?

Fisher House is a program that houses the loved ones of military members while they undergo medical treatment at the VA. I’ve heard stories of spouses sleeping in their car while their partner had a medical treatment done at the VA so they could be close to them during the process. They couldn't afford to rent a hotel room so they were forced to stay in their car overnight to be close. We just opened a brand new Fisher House at our VA here in Tucson, it can house over 40 people and is a top notch facility. The loved ones can stay there for free, have meals and toiletries provided, and be around other people in similar situations for support. It's important we take care of our troops in their time of need. I know how important family is to military members, dependents, and spouses because I come from a military family. My grandpa's, great uncles, uncles, dad, myself; we all served. I moved around every 3-4 years growing up. Our family was everything we had.
