Workshop for Student Veterans slated for Oct. 1

Penn State Berks Office of Veterans Services will hold an informational workshop for student veterans on veteran benefits on Wednesday, October 1, 2014, from 11:00 a.m.?3:00 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room of the Perkins Student Center.

In collaboration with the County of Berks Veteran Affairs Office and the Lebanon VA Medical Centers' Outreach Programs, Penn State Berks Veterans Services will provide student veterans with information on VA health care and benefit programs, including information on compensation, education, as well as other federal, state, and county services.

Student veterans who attend the workshop will have the necessary tools and information to complete key tasks such as accessing their DD214, Certificate of Eligibility, and other documentation needed for VA benefits. VA health representatives will also be present to help student veterans create their "My VA Health Accounts.?

According to Joe Webb, Director of Student Support Services at Penn State Berks, ?With the scope of student veterans who will be in attendance, the representatives should be able to answer just about any question that comes their way, so it should be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get any questions they may have off their chest.?
