Supermarket of benefits for veterans

Posted: Updated:

Veterans in west Alabama will soon get some help and options when it comes to their care.  A Supermarket of Veterans Benefits will be hosted by the Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs and the Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center.  It will be held Wednesday, March 12 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  With over 14,000 veterans residing in Tuscaloosa County, a large turnout is expected in the Sports Atrium inside the Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center Campus.  

The supermarket of benefits is part of an outreach campaign to help the more than 420,000 Alabama Veterans, family members and survivors.  There, they will receive valuable information about state, federal and non-governmental services and benefits that are designed specifically for them.  

In addition to state VA programs and benefits, the Tuscaloosa VA will have representatives on hand from the VA Home Based Primary Care; Homeless Program; OEF/OIF Combat Veterans Services; Women Veterans Program; Veterans Integration to Academic Leadership program for student Veterans, and much more.

For more information, the public can contact the Tuscaloosa County Veterans Service Office at (205) 349-3870, ext. 360.
