The History Of NABVETS
NABVETS was certified “for the purpose of preparations, presentations, and persecution of claims under laws administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs.” NABVETS has served as a leader to address the unmet concerns of minority and low-income Veterans for almost 40 years through direct services, empowerment training, and collaborative partnerships. Those Veterans who need assistance filing for disability compensation, pension reimbursement, education benefits, etc., can utilize
NABVETS claims services representatives who guide Veterans through the entire bureaucratic process. In order to provide the best quality claims service available, NABVETS has centralized the claims review and quality assurance function into one location. All Claims are reviewed by the highest trained experts prior to submission to the Department of Veterans Affairs, ensuring the best possible opportunity for positive adjunctification of the initial claim. NABVETS works in collaboration with its claim service staff and the highly reputable National Veterans Legal Service Program when representing Veteran’s claims. The system is an electronic database, retrievable by our Veteran’s Service Representatives at anytime, anywhere around the world. At the present time, NABVETS has State Command in 15 states, merging States Commands in 16 states, 9 regions, and 120 Chapters.
On an ongoing basis, the National Association for Black Veterans, Inc. (NABVETS) will provide strategic advocacy on behalf of its membership with Congress and the federal administration; state administrations; county and city legislators; and other agencies and organizations.
NABVETS will provide personal advocacy on behalf of “ALL” Veterans seeking claims against the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and will foster community development by creating positive lifestyles for Veterans and their families. NABVETS will generate and preserve the historical record of minority Veterans.
