Budget does little to improve veterans benefits

Bad for the military; not good enough for veterans. That about sums up defence-related elements of the federal budget tabled March 22 by Finance Minister Bill Morneau.

How to apply for veterans’ disability benefits

There are a number of ways to acquire application forms and get help filling them in.

Receive application forms by mail: contact Veterans Affairs Canada at 1-866-522-2122.

Download forms: www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/forms/document/493.

Pick up and drop off forms at Service Canada sites across the country at www.servicecanada.gc.ca or 1-800-622-6232.

Apply for disability benefits through a My VAC Account. Register for an account online at www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/e_ services/register.

Veterans Affairs Canada district office staff will help you prepare your application and tell you where to get supporting documents. Find the closest VAC office at www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/contact.

Service officers with veterans’ advocacy groups such as The Royal Canadian Legion will help you assemble information for your application and provide advice and support, free of charge. Contact a RCL service officer through a local branch, servicebureau@legion.ca.
or call 1-877-534-4666.
