Veterans seeking information and assistance regarding VA disability claims, benefits and military discharges are invited to attend sessions staffed by legal experts from the Veterans Clinic at the University of Missouri School of Law.
The sessions are being offered as part of the Clinic’s new Tigers for Troops initiative in partnership with University of Missouri Extension.
At each Tigers for Troops event, clinic personnel will conduct a general information session focused on VA disability claims and discharge upgrades. Following this general session, clinic attorneys will be available to meet individually with veterans to discuss specific questions. MU law students will be present to assist attorneys and to provide general information.
At all sites, there will be two sessions per day and participants need to arrive at their designated time. The following sessions are scheduled:
· 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, Apr. 16 at MU Extension Office in Clay County, located at: 1901 NE 48th Street, Kansas City. Call the Clay County Extension office at 816-407-3490 to register.
· 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday, Apr. 17 at TJ Hall, located at 104 S. Main Street, Oregon. Call the Holt County Extension office 660-446-3724 to register.
