Rhode Island Veterans Benefits Counseling
The Rhode Island Veterans Affairs Office offers benefit counseling including a
variety of social services to Rhode Island armed forces personnel, veterans, and their dependents who are seeking assistance.
This office processes all applications for admissions to the RI Veterans Home and will conduct home visits, if needed,
for those veterans applying for admission. Other services handled by this office include casework, counseling, referral, budget
management, and completion of claims (i.e. pensions, compensations, social security).
The Veterans Affairs Office also provides information needed for the admission team at the Rhode Island Veterans
Home to assign the proper level of nursing care to the veterans it serves. In addition, staff at the Veterans Affairs Office
work with all state veteran services organizations to assist veterans with their requests for services.
Free Legal Help
Rhode Island’s only law school, in
partnership with a local law firm, is opening a legal clinic for disabled veterans. Students at the Roger Williams University
Law School will work directly with veterans. With a little supervision, the lawyers-in-training will help veterans who have
been denied disability benefits, navigate the appeals process. For more information
contact law school at 401-254-4500.
