Veteran salutes the American flag

Virginia Veteran resources, benefits event made “life-changing” difference

VEAC events bring together VA benefits, health care and other resources in partnership with state VA resources, Rally Point, other Veteran Service Organizations, and local Community Veterans Engagement Boards. This holistic approach to address Veterans' needs where they live has shown remarkable results.

Virtual Events Offer Tangible Results

“It’s really good,” said Amerfino Aquipel, Veteran and Greater Los Angeles Area virtual VEAC participant. “I contacted VA 15 years ago and never received this kind of service. I was guided where I needed to be the whole time. Being able to talk to someone made the difference instead of writing a letter and not knowing where to turn. I didn’t feel lost anymore. This is a great service, and now I have someone representing my claim.”

Frequently asked questions

Throughout the year,  VA and our partners host VEACs and VetXLs across the country. Both events are supported by state-specific partners to ensure local resources are available. Please only register for the VEAC and VetXL in your state, as we are unable serve out-of-state Veterans and their loved ones at these events. This page is updated as new VEAC and VetXL events are established.

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. 

Veterans Experience Live (VetXL) events are virtual Q&A chats on RallyPoint where VA and community experts try to address questions and resolve challenges from the Veteran community on resources, benefits, information, and referrals. These events aim to engage with the community through typed chats and augment the VEAC effort by serving those who may not need the more robust VEAC services.
