VA benefits are out there, you just have to know how to acquire them in San Diego. The application process can be extremely tedious, demanding, and full of paperwork, and help is often needed. So, here are some ways to apply for various VA programs, some of which cover chiropractic care as well.

The evidence you need to provide should include separation or discharge papers, Service Treatment records, and hospital and doctor records.
Employment benefits and vocational rehabilitation
Veterans often face problems finding jobs after active service, so the government helps with various employment VA benefits. What’s more, you can also attend Educational or Career Counseling online.

If you are deemed eligible, you will be called in for an in-person orientation session, at the nearest VA Regional Office, and see whether you need chiropractic or any other type of medical treatment.
Indemnity and Dependency benefits for survivors and dependents
The first thing a family member usually does is acquire evidence requirements for this benefit. You need to be able to confirm the following – that the veteran died during active duty, from a disease or injury related to his service, or that he was receiving VA Compensation for a disability rated completely disabling.
Having collected the necessary evidence, fill in the VA Form 21P-534EZ, and mail it to Pension Management Center in your state. You can also go to a nearby VA office, and ask for assistance.
Pension is also part of a financial care program for veterans, and you can easily apply if you are eligible. You have to be over the age of 65 with limited income, or no income at all. You are also eligible if you are permanently disabled, receiving care at a nursing home, or if you the government is paying for your Social Security Disability Insurance.

Home loans for service members and survivors
Many veterans have difficulties paying for their accommodation upon completing active service, which can also be a problem for the families of those service members who have fallen in action.
That is why the government has managed to organize several programs that help the veterans and their families with loans.
The aspects that factor into being deemed eligible for home loan benefits are your service commitment and length of duty, as well as the character and status of duty. The loan programs include Cash-Out and Purchase loans, the Interest Rate Reduction Refinance loan, Adapted Housing Grants, and Native American Reduction Refinance Loan.
After that, you can apply online, again, using the eBenefits website, or apply for a certificate of eligibility for home loans through your lender. If you want to apply through mail, fill in the VA Form 26-1880, and send it to the Regional Loan Center in your state.
