Help for Student Veterans with the GI Bill
The Federal Savings bank has been informing Student veterans that they will now receive extra assistance with accessing their benefits through a new program called 1 Student Veteran. The initiative was created through a partnership between the Student Veterans of America (SVA) and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW).
Any student veteran having difficulty with a GI Bill or other VA benefit can email the 1 Student Veteran hotline to report the problem. A response will be sent within 24 hours during the workweek, and VFW staff will then either intervene or recommend further action, according to the SVA.
“This partnership with the VFW will ensure student veterans are provided with the necessary support needed to gain access to their earned benefits and navigate the complex education claims process,” said Michael Dakduk, executive director of SVA.
If you are having trouble accessing other veterans benefits such a VA home loan, the Federal Savings Bank can help. Call (877) 788-3520 to learn more.
Because the VFW has direct access to the regional VA processing offices, it hopes to solve student veterans’ issues expediently, as reported by The Marine Corps Times. The 1 Student Veteran hotline will also be modeled after the way the VFW assists with VA disability claims.
