Veterans Administration reps will visit Island

A representative from the Veterans Administration (VA) will travel to Martha’s Vineyard on Friday, February 1 to meet with veterans and answer questions regarding benefits.

The VA representative will be at the American Legion Hall in Vineyard Haven from 11 am to 3:30 pm to meet with individuals. An open forum will follow from 3:30 to 5 pm on VA pension and aid and attendance.

Individuals who are eligible for a VA pension and need the regular aid of another person in order to perform personal functions required for everyday living may be eligible, depending on income, for what the VA calls aid and attendance.
