TeleBenefits Now Available at VA Butler Healthcare

A Virtual VA Benefits Agent for Local Veterans

Butler, PA – TeleBenefits, a program in which Veterans are provided with benefits information and assistance through the use of Video Teleconferencing Equipment is now available at VA Butler Healthcare every other Friday from 8am-12pm (no appointment needed).

With TeleBenefits, Veterans are able to video chat with a claim specialist ready to assist with VA benefits related questions and services. Veterans are also able to submit claims and supporting documents during the Telebenefits session.

“Through this new service, Veterans can expect to travel less and have immediate and efficient benefits assistance,” said Amy Stewart, Transition and Care Management Program Manager at VA Butler Healthcare who helps coordinate this new service for Butler Veterans. “There is no need to call, no need to drive to the VA Regional Office, TeleBenefits brings a Virtual Agent to Veterans.”

Telebenefits aims to improve access to VA benefits and services for Veterans who may experience geographic or technology limitations, or who prefer a face-to-face interaction due to the nature of assistance required or based upon preference over other access options.

Veterans may utilize this new, walk-in service (no appointments) every other Friday at the Abie Abraham VA Health Care Center (Waiting Room 1) from 8:00am-12:00pm. Upcoming dates for Telebenefits sessions are: July 13, July 27, and August 10. To learn more, Veterans may contact: Amy Stewart (878-271-6120) or Amy Kunst (878-271-6119).
