From Military To Civilian –

A Seamless Transition

 

Links

When members of the Armed Forces of the United States finish at least one year of their tour of deployment they need to enroll in the Veterans Administration (VA) program to obtain any VA Health Benefits they may be entitled to receive. Service members need to enroll PROMPTLY and do it NOW by following these steps:

 

Obtain a copy of your service medical records prior to discharge.

Do not take any shortcuts when separating and do this immediately. Any idea of hurrying to get home may cost you time and money should you require VA Healthcare at any time in the future.


• A veteran has two years, after separation, to apply for medical conditions that are a result of their service in the military. After two years the process becomes more difficult.


If you require medical assistance from the VA after separation / discharge, bring with you a copy of your medical records, a copy of your DD-214, and two forms of picture identification.


• Any injury or illness incurred while serving on active duty as a regular, reservist, or Federalized member of the National Guard needs to be noted in your medical records.


Enroll in the VA IMMEDIATELY. Do Not Procrastinate!! Know your rights and your responsibilities. If you are not sure, ASK-ASK-ASK-ASK-ASK!!! Ensure that your transition is smooth. Know what you need to do, and DO IT!

IT’S YOUR DUTY TO DO SO!


“WELCOME HOME, CONGRATULATIONS ON
A JOB WELL DONE, AND GOOD LUCK”
