Service Officers - Veterans Benefits
The Gateway Chapter PVA National Service Offices are available to assist our veteran members and dependents, or survivors of a veteran with information regarding their VA benefits.

The Service Officers can provide information on available benefits, as well as assist in filing for those benefits such as VA housing grants, adapted motor vehicle grants, and VA disability claims and appeals. There have been recent changes to the Specially Adapted Housing VA grant as well as the Adapted Motor Vehicle grants. The Adapted Housing grant now has a limit of $77,307, and the Adapted Motor Vehicle grant now has a limit of $20,235.20. This may be of interest to veterans who previously used their housing grant, but did not receive the new maximum amount. The National Service Officers can also help coordinate eligibility for receiving care at VA Hospitals and clinics. That care may be either as an inpatient or outpatient. In the St. Louis area, there is the VA John Cochran Hospital and the Jefferson Barracks Medical Center that has a 32 bed spinal cord unit in Building 52. Newly injured patients may be entitled to care at the spinal cord unit, as well as those previously injured but needing care for other health related issues. Veterans may also be eligible for respite care stays at the spinal cord unit to relieve the assistance demands on family members at home or temporary loss of attendant care.
