Danielsen to Host Veterans Claims Clinic

Asm. Joseph Danielsen VA Representative Will Be Available to Help Veterans, Service Members with Claims

Assemblyman Joseph Danielsen will join the Newark regional office of the Department of Veterans Affairs on May 16 to host a veterans claims clinic. The event will give those who have served in the military an opportunity to get one-on-one guidance on how to receive benefits and entitlements.

"Too many men and women who were willing to put their lives on the line in defense of the United States of America essentially forfeit benefits that they earned and deserve simply because they're unaware of what's available," said Danielsen (D-Middlesex/Somerset), who served as an Army reservist. "Reaching out to those who served is a critical part of meeting our obligation to ensure veterans receive the health care, education, housing and employment services they need."
