How can Legal Aid help a Veteran facing issues with money, housing, family, health or employment?


Are you a low-income U.S. Veteran facing problems with:


  • Have your veteran’s benefits been terminated or reduced due to overpayment?
  • Have you been denied or terminated from other government benefits? (e.g. Food Stamps, cash assistance, SSI, Unemployment Compensation)
  • Do you have debts that cause problems with meeting your needs, for example obtaining utilities, driver’s license, or housing?
  • Have you received any letters or notices from the IRS about your federal taxes?


  • Have you applied for and been denied a subsidy to help pay for housing?
  • Is your rent subsidy being terminated?
  • Does your apartment need repairs that your landlord refuses to make?
  • Has your landlord given you a notice to leave your apartment or are you being evicted?
  • Are you behind on mortgage payments or facing foreclosure?
  • Did you receive a shut off notice for your lights, gas, or water?


  • Are you afraid for your safety because of your current or former significant other or household member?
  • Are you afraid for your child’s safety?
  • Do you have problems paying child support?
  • Does your child have problems in school with learning or with behavior?
  • Do you have trouble accessing health care?


  • Do you have trouble filling your prescriptions for medication?
  • Do you have a criminal record that prevents you from getting a job?


  • Have you been denied a professional license (e.g. barber, day care provider, STNA?)
  • Do you need your driver’s license reinstated in order to work?
