VA partnership with Corporation for National Community Service supports older Veterans and their caregivers (6/26/2019)
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recently began partnering with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) to engage Senior Corps volunteers in support of VA's Choose Home Initiative, enabling older Veterans to receive needed homemaker and daily living support in their homes, rather than move into health care institutions.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' recent release of the 2018 data for the Veterans Crisis Line (VCL) confirms the call center continues to outpace last year's metrics by providing faster, more effective assistance to Veterans and their loved ones.
On July 1, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will reduce Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI) monthly premium rates from 7 cents per $1,000 to 6 cents per $1,000 of insurance, along with Family SGLI Program (FSGLI) premium rates for spousal coverage at all age brackets.
