All BVA Programs and Services are available to any blinded veteran in need, regardless of how or when they lost their sight, or whether they are a BVA member.
The Field Service Program Resource Center is a one-stop shop for services provided by BVA, featuring a dedicated toll free number which any blind veteran across the nation can call and receive services from any BVA National Field Service Officer regardless of where they live. This will streamline services and provide consistency to all veterans.
BVA Field Service Officers are all legally blinded veterans. They serve as role models and empower blinded veterans to find and follow the road to independence. They work as access specialists, providing inspiration, encouragement, and practical assistance with Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) claims and appeals. They also educate veterans about VA benefits and services, as well as local resources.
They also serve as a Veterans’ Care Review Team, collaborating with VA clinic staff to ensure that veterans receive the best possible service.
