Plaquemines Parish – The Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs Office has reopened its Plaquemines Parish satellite location. Staff members will be available to assist by appointment from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays at 333 F. Edward Herbert Boulevard, Building 600, in Belle Chasse.
“The LA Department of Veterans Affairs is dedicated to helping our veterans navigate the complex world of veterans services and the benefits that are available to them,” said Parish President Kirk Lepine. “We look forward to continuing to offer that top-notch service—whether it be at the reopened location or by phone.”
The Veterans Affairs Office assists service to Louisiana’s Veterans, and their families, about health care, education, disability benefits, long-term care, and burial honors. Veterans Affairs staff are experts on the VA claims process. LDVA works with veterans to Identify what evidence is needed to have the best possible chance of having a claim approved, explain and clarify VA procedures that apply to the claim, Monitor the claim as it progresses through the development process, and intercede if problems with a claim should arise. If a claim is denied by the VA and the veteran disagrees with the VA's decision, LDVA's PSOs and Claims Office will help through the appeal process. For example, LDVA can assist in preparing a proper notice of disagreement, representing the veteran at a personal hearing, etc.
