LoBiondo Announces Veterans Enrollment & Benefits Clinic in Salem County

May 16, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Continuing his commitment to South Jersey veterans, U.S. Representative Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02) today detailed his plans to hold the next enrollment clinic in Salem County to help local veterans in determining their eligibility and, if eligible, facilitate their participation in the VA healthcare system. The Salem County enrollment clinic hosted at the Salem Community College will be held on Thursday, June 15th.

“To date the enrollment and benefits clinics have registered and assisted hundreds of South Jersey veterans. With more veterans enrolled, the case can be made to the VA that more local healthcare services are needed here in South Jersey,” said LoBiondo. “Over the past year in partnership with the VA, we have significantly expanded community-based services available locally for South Jersey veterans to include more than 200 provider agreements with non-VA medical professionals. Bringing additional services remains the mission that will not end. I remain committed to our veterans and will continue to host these clinics while working to expand local access to healthcare services.”

LoBiondo has long advocated for greater local healthcare services and continues to work with VA officials in Wilmington and Philadelphia and local veterans groups to bring additional services to South Jersey’s four VA community-based clinics (Vineland, Northfield, Cape May, Sewell).

As at previous enrollment clinics, there will be representatives from the VA Medical Centers and Benefits offices on hand to answer veterans’ questions and explain eligibility requirements. Veterans who plan to attend are asked to bring their DD-214.

Details of the Veterans Enrollment & Benefits Clinic on Thursday, June 15th are as follows:

Salem County

Salem Community College

460 Hollywood Avenue, Carneys Point

10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon

Veterans can also determine their eligibility, enroll in the VA system, and ask additional questions by calling 1-877-222-VETS or visiting the website www.va.gov.

This will be the 14th enrollment clinic hosted by LoBiondo, with previous sessions in Vineland, Bridgeton, Wildwood, Cape May Court House, Somers Point, Elmer, and Northfield.
