Texas Veterans Commission hosts "Beating the VA Backlog" events in Arlington & Austin





On
Saturday, January 26, the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC) is hosting a
“Beating the VA Backlog” event in Arlington in order to provide direct,
one-on-one assistance to Texas Veterans with disability claims currently
pending with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This event
will take place at the Sheraton Arlington Hotel, 1500 Convention Center
Drive, on January 26, 2013, from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.






"Our
Veterans sacrifice everything in service to their country, and they
deserve more than long lines and bureaucratic red tape when it comes to
receiving their benefits," said Gov. Rick Perry. "While the federal
government drags its feet, Texas will act. I am proud to have worked
with Lieutenant Governor Dewhurst and Speaker Straus to ensure that
Texas, through the State Strike Force Teams, works to get our Veterans
the timely assistance they deserve.”






Members
from the TVC State Strike Force Teams, as well as TVC Claims
Counselors, will be on hand to provide direct and specific assistance to
Veterans, family members, and survivors, including:




  • Checking the status of pending claims

  • Identifying all additional development required for claims processing

  • Collecting evidence for cases identified as missing documentation

"Our
fine Veterans did not wait when asked to serve our country, and they
shouldn't be asked to wait for their country to return the favor,” said
Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. “I commend the Texas Veterans Commission and
the 'State Strike Force Team' for taking swift action to help our
Veterans with their claims and ultimately helping reduce the federal
backlog."






“Since
the TVC State Strike Force Teams were authorized by the Governor,
Lieutenant Governor, and Speaker of the House in July, we have already
helped more than 10,400 Veterans whose claims were stuck in the VA
backlog and provided over 2,900 cases to the VA for action,” said Thomas
Palladino, TVC Executive Director. “This ‘Beating the VA Backlog’ event
is one of several events that the TVC is holding around the state as we
try to help Texas Veterans get the benefits they deserve.”






With
the backlog of VA disability claims in Texas consisting of over 64,000
pending claims, Veterans everywhere are experiencing extensive delays in
receiving the benefits that are owed to them for service to their
country. Two State Strike Force Teams consisting of eight claims
counselors each are located at the two VA Regional Offices in Houston
and Waco. These teams take claims that are backlogged and ensure that
the claims have all information and evidence necessary for the VA to
immediately process the claim. Additionally, TVC Fully Developed Claims
Teams are located at the VA Regional Offices and in TVC offices
throughout the state in order to improve access and assist Veterans in
filing fully developed claims, which are processed faster by the VA.






In
addition to the event in Arlington, the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC)
is also hosting a “Beating the VA Backlog” event in Austin. This event
will take place at the Palmer Events Center, 900 Barton Springs, on
Wednesday, February 13, 2013, from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.






These
events are open to all Veterans, their families, and survivors, and all
services are free of charge. Preregistering will give staff an
opportunity to research your claim prior to the events and provide you
with the ability to select an appointment time. Walk-ins are allowed on a
first-come, first-served basis as time allows. For details regarding
these events, contact information and registration, please visit

At local job fair, Texas Veterans Commission offers unique classes to help Veterans transition to civilian workforce





During
the Hiring Red, White and You Job Fair which was hosted in November,
over 10,000 Veterans and their family members attended the event in
cities across Texas. The event was made possible through a partnership
by
the Texas Workforce Commission, the Texas Veterans Commission (TVC), 28
Workforce Development boards, the Texas Medical Center, Gov. Rick
Perry, Dr. James H. “Red” Duke Jr., and more than 1,100 employers
. In Waco alone, 224 Veterans and family members attended to find employment and new career opportunities.





In
addition to the Waco job fair, the TVC Veterans Employment Services
(VES) staff also organized and conducted job fair prep sessions. The
staff teamed up with the Workforce Solutions for the Heart of Texas
Business Services Unit (BSU) to hold the sessions that spanned over two
weeks leading up the Hiring Red, White and You Job Fair. Almost 30
Veteran job seekers attended, and out of those attending, 17
participants were hired as a result of attending the sessions.






VES
staff (Richard Chouinard, Brad Gill and Kelly Cameron) teamed with
Andrea Valero of BSU to work with local employers and set up sessions
with alternative approaches so that the Veterans could find something
that will work with their own personality and style.






In
the session, "Sergeant's Time Resume Training," local employers
provided Veterans with information on what employers are looking for in
resumes. During the session, Levi Burks of AEROTEK and Kathryn Lamb of
Spherion covered resume styles, transitioning of skills, gaps in
employment, targeted resumes, and company research.






For
individual resumes, the team set up the "Resume Pass and Review"; these
sessions were held twice for Veterans to get one-on-one assistance with
their resume, which were reviewed by the VES staff and BSU staff.
Suggestions were given to attendees on how to enhance their resumes and
also provide resume workbooks to assist in the development.






“Dress
Right, Dress” covered dressing for interviews, job fairs and job
searches, as well as interviewing techniques for job fairs, elevator
speeches and targeted interviews. VES and BSU presented guidance on
appropriate dress, body language, enthusiasm during an interview and job
search, shaking hands, eye contact, and inappropriate behavior (cell
phones, gum chewing, email addresses, etc.).






Each
of the sessions was followed by a “Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC)
Clinic.” During that session, VES collected completed documents and
necessary documentation for Veterans to get pre-certified for the
credit, and Veterans were given information regarding the Vow to Hire
Heroes Act and the benefits of WOTC and their search for employment
during the sessions.






TVC
VES will be hosting more sessions across the state, and an Employment
Clinic is planned for Austin in conjuction with the 15th Annual Veterans
Summit. During the Clinic, Veterans will get one-on-one assistance on
their resume, tips for translating their military skills, and advice on
conducting a successful job search in addition to being matched with
available jobs on WorkInTexas.com.
