Veteran Affairs must take action during the public health crisis

Asuntos de veteranos deben aumentar la acción en torno al coronavirus (COVID-19)

NYLAG, y los proveedores y defensores de servicios legales asociados, instan al Departamento de Asuntos de Veteranos de EE. UU. A que actúe sobre nuestras propuestas destinadas a proporcionar asistencia a los veteranos de nuestra nación durante la pandemia de coronavirus. 

  1. Suspender las fechas límite para reclamos de beneficios de VA hasta al menos 60 días después de la terminación de la emergencia nacional
  2. Acelerar urgentemente las decisiones sobre reclamos y beneficios relacionados con dificultades financieras
  3. Cambie todos los exámenes de indemnización de VA en persona y de incapacidad de pensión a exámenes de telesalud o de audio
  4. Extender el acceso a subsidios de vivienda para estudiantes veteranos hasta al menos 60 días después de la terminación de la emergencia nacional
  5. Detener la actividad de cobro de deudas hasta al menos 60 días después de la terminación de la emergencia nacional
  6. Proporcionar acceso gratuito a VA Healthcare para todos los veteranos, independientemente del estado del alta, que experimenten síntomas consistentes con COVID-19
