BECAUSE YOU SERVED
Resources for Furloughed Veterans and their Families
[the following is an email sent out by the Veterans Benefits Administration]
Dear Veterans and Stakeholders,
We recognize that many of our fellow Veterans, who are also government employees impacted by the partial federal government shutdown, may be experiencing personal and financial stress right now. Not only is VA still open for business, but we are actively working to provide furloughed Veteran federal employees affected with much needed support and relief.
We put together a detailed list of VA benefits and points of contact for assistance. You can find the list here. This list also provides programs and assistance by other federal agencies and organizations to support furloughed government employees.
Thank you for your continued dedication and service, especially during these difficult times. We will continue to work with our entire network of VA partners to support you in the best way possible to fulfill our vital mission.
