FREEHOLD, NJ - Veterans and their dependents in the state of New Jersey are invited to participate in a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Town Hall discussion to hear the latest on VA benefit programs and provide their own feedback on benefits and services provided by VA.

The VA’s Newark Regional Office invites and encourages public participation at the Friday, June 26th, Town Hall meeting to be held in the Monmouth County Agriculture Building at 4000 Kozloski Road, Freehold, NJ, starting at 1:00PM.  Congressional representatives, community members and Veterans Service Organizations and the general public are invited to attend.

This Town Hall meeting is one of many being held around the country each quarter.  Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald announced the creation of Town Hall meetings to improve communications wit and hear directly from Veterans nationwide as an important step toward improving the delivery of benefits and services and rebuilding trust among all those VA serves.  By listening to those we serve, we can identify areas of concern and discuss programs that are successful.

The Newark Regional Office is one of 56 around the country which provides a wide array of financial benefits to eligible Veterans and their families, such as disability compensation for service-related injuries or illnesses, income-based pension for wartime Veterans and their survivors, education, vocational rehabilitation and employment, home loan, and life insurance benefits.  Claim representatives will be on hand to assist Veterans personally after the Town Hall meeting with questions or issues related to their individual claims.
