"Wounded Warrior Project is breaking through organizational boundaries and putting the injured veteran first," said John Roberts, executive vice president of WWP Warrior Relations. "This is an innovative event that places a veteran face-to-face with a WWP staff member and the VA representative who impacts the outcome of their claim."
The success of the WWP Benefits Service program lies in its efforts to ensure claims are filed and processed correctly – the first time.
"WWP staff works individually with injured veterans to understand their unique needs, provide information and education on the claims process, advise them of benefit options, file benefit claims, and help to obtain necessary evidence," John said. "The staff stays connected with these heroes through the entire claim life cycle."
