Veterans Experience Action Center (VEAC) events are collaborative efforts that include representation from Veterans Health Administration, Veterans Benefits Administration, National Cemetery Administration, Board of Veterans’ Appeals, state departments of Veterans affairs, and community partners working together to offer one-on-one personalized assistance for VA benefits and health care, crisis support, memorial affairs, community services and peer-to-peer connections. Service members, Veterans, their family members, caregivers and survivors select their preferred date and time and then make an appointment online to connect to the VEAC. A local Veteran Service Officer initiates the appointment by calling the registrant. The appointment is executed over the phone in a virtual environment. Please expect to be transferred to VA experts and community partners as we work to address and meet your needs. Veterans who attend these events often leave enrolled in VA and other resources. Over 94% recommend these events to other Veterans.
