"Wounded Warrior Project is breaking through organizational boundaries and putting injured veterans first," said John Roberts, executive vice president of WWP Warrior Relations. "This is an innovative opportunity 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.
"Through the generous support of our donors, WWP is able to provide our warriors with professional staff who are committed to better understanding injured veterans' unique needs. They are experts in the veteran claims process, advising warriors of benefit options, filing benefit claims, and helping to obtain necessary evidence," said Mike Linnington, WWP chief executive officer. "The staff stays connected with these heroes through the entire claim lifecycle."
