Course Description

Length: 1h 0min    Published: 10/19/2018    
Veterans sometimes want to upgrade their military discharge status. This can be a matter of principle, because they believe their discharge does not accurately reflect their service to the country, or because the discharge type can affect eligibility for benefits. This program will cover: - The various discharge characterizations available from the armed forces - The impact of discharge status upon eligibility for Veterans Administration benefits - Other possible negative impacts that can result from “bad paper” discharges - Options to seek discharge upgrades - Recent policy changes that can affect efforts to upgrade discharge status
Learning Objectives
* Understand military discharge characterizations
* Learn how discharge status can impact eligibility for Veterans Administration benefits
