AAFMAA and Disabled American Veterans (DAV) have joined forces to ensure that members of the Association receive DAV's professional claims services and representation.
"This is an outstanding partnership between AAFMAA and DAV to provide even greater service to the veterans who need our representation," said Washington Headquarters Executive Director David W. Gorman. "AAFMAA protects service members and their families, and have done so for more than a century with low-cost life insurance and unique survivor assistance services."
Since AAFMAA also specializes in military benefits counseling and other advisory services, DAV?s service representation will be a great enhancement. A Memorandum of Agreement was signed which utilizes the DAV?s nationwide network of National Service Officers and Transition Service Officers to assist in counseling, development, presentation and representation of VA benefit claims and appeals.
"DAV services will be provided at no cost to service members, veterans and their dependents who are members of AAFMAA," said National Service Director Garry J. Augustine. "When AAFMAA is serving a veteran and they may benefit from DAV services, they will be referred to the nearest DAV National Service Office."In addition, AAFMAA and DAV will share distribution of organizational and program pamphlets and cross-train staff members on each organization?s programs and goals regarding VA services and benefits.
