VA Grants Up to One Year of Retroactive Veterans Benefits

From a Department of Veterans Affairs News Release

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2, 2013 – The Department of Veterans Affairs announced yesterday that veterans filing an original fully developed claim for service-connected disability compensation may be entitled to up to one-year of retroactive disability benefits.

The retroactive benefits, which are in effect Aug. 6, 2013, through Aug. 5, 2015, are a result of a comprehensive legislative package passed by Congress and signed into law by President Barack Obama last year.

Veteran's Legal Clinic


Judge Neal, Commissioners, Veterans & To All: In the last three months, I have been working with the Corpus Christi Bar Association (at their request) to conduct a free legal clinic for Nueces County veterans. Corpus Christi/Nueces County attorneys desire to help
veterans and their families with their legal needs. This desire gave ... birth to the idea of a “veterans legal clinic.”

Mr. Dick King, Administrator of the bar association, and key attorneys have asked me to distribute a mass email to leaders of our veterans service organizations and all my contacts who assist veterans in Nueces County – informing them that a veterans legal
clinic has been organized and will be implemented by local attorneys. Please assist me and the bar association to advertise this event. Commanders/presidents/service officers: Please inform your membership of this opportunity for our veterans.

Purpose: This veterans legal clinic will assist low-income veterans & their families and is scheduled for August 8, 2013, from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm, Central Jury Room, Nueces County Courthouse.

If you have questions, you may contact me at 361-888-0821 or Dick King at the bar association at 361-658-4694. Thank you.
