STRONGSVILLE, OH - On June 14th from 2-6 pm, Congressman Jim Renacci will be hosting a veterans’ mobile office hours at Strongsville VFW Post 3345, 17900 Strongsville Blvd, Strongsville, Ohio 44149.
At this event, veterans can learn about and sign up for local, state and federal benefits. If a veteran needs their DD-214, service medals, service treatment records, personnel file, or a copy of their VBA file, my staff will be on hand to assist in filing these requests.
The Cleveland Veterans Affairs Regional Office (VARO) will be able to pull up the status of a claim, complete an intent to file and talk with veterans about their claim. They will also be able to assist in filing a compensation or pension claim. This provides an opportunity for veterans to speak directly with the Department of Veterans Affairs regarding service compensation.
The National Cemetery Administration will be on hand to assist with preneed eligibility and national cemetery questions. In 2016, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs began issuing pre-need determination letters to assist veterans with their preneed arrangements. The Louis Stokes Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) will have staff on hand to determine eligibility for healthcare benefits and answer health care questions.
The Cuyahoga County Veterans’ Service Commission will be on hand to assist veterans with county and state benefits. If a veteran has a question concerning any earned benefit, one of the subject matter experts will be present to assist them.
A veteran may obtain a Veterans Document Identification Card through the Cuyahoga County officer. If a veteran would like to receive a card, they need to bring a copy of their DD214, and present one form of identification from among the following: a valid driver’s license, certified birth certificate, Social Security card, a valid United States passport, a valid conceal & carry permit, or an identification card from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. One of the forms of identification must be a photo ID. The cost of the document identification card is just one dollar.
