What is a VA Accredited Claims Agent?

Generally, for anyone to assist another with a specific claim for VA benefits – even if it is being done free of charge – he/she must be accredited by the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Assistance includes preparation, presentation, and prosecution of a specific claim for benefits. VA Accreditation for claim agents requires a rigorous examination and background check and means that an individual can provide responsible, qualified representation of a claimant(veteran).
