DEATH of FAMILY or FRIEND
When you’ve checked off all the topics you want help with, on the Landing Page. Enter your zip code you’ll see all the Federal, State and local government resources that can help you. And, you’ll also see a list of local community providers who can help. Note, we do not endorse any individual provider, as it is up to you to decide what is the right fit for your particular needs.
However, We Do Always Recommend that you Start by Going To Your Local Veterans Service Office (VSO). They will make sure you are getting ALL the compensation, treatment, benefits and services you have EARNED for yourself AND your family. It’s a FREE service. Most counselors are vets and have been certified. Our local VSO files 95% of their applications on line, achieving a 94% approval in around 6 weeks. Find your VSO by using the search, above.
When the end comes, these are some of the things you have to take care of for your loved one.
