The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Community Action for Veterans (CAV) will be hosting a PACT Act Benefits and VA Healthcare Drive to inform Veterans, their families, and survivors about the PACT Act and encourage them to apply for the health care and benefits they have earned.
CAV encourages all eligible Veterans and survivors to file a claim – or submit their intent to file a claim – for PACT Act-related benefits now. Veterans who do so by August 9, 2023, may have their benefits, if granted, backdated to August 10, 2022, the day that President Biden signed the bill into law.
Representatives from the Dakotas Regional Office, Sioux Falls VA Health Care System, and the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs will be ready to help Veterans apply for PACT Act-related benefits, enroll in VA health care, get screened for toxic exposures, and more.
The PACT Act Benefits/VA Healthcare Drive will be at the Armory at the Alliance in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. On site refreshments and sack lunches to go will be provided by the VFW, Post 628 and American Legion, Unit 15 Auxiliaries. There will be two sessions:
- Session 1- 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. CDT
- Session 2 - 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. CDT
