Attached you will find a downloadable flyer with a QR code that directs veterans and claimants to our Pact Act website ( that is a direct referral tool for those that feel they may qualify for benefits under the new law.
Please feel free to display it in your offices, use it as an outreach tool, disseminate it to your Posts, etc. so we can reach as many people as possible.
The veteran answers a few short questions to determine their potential eligibility and upon completion, it will generate a direct referral to the appropriate DSO based on location.
Additionally, it also provides links to the DSO directory for surviving spouses who also may be eligible for benefits.
