The Veterans Land Board will host a free benefits fair for all Texas Veterans on Saturday, July 13th. The benefits fair will take place at the Lubbock VA Outpatient Clinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The fair is open to all Veterans, military members, and their families. The fair in Lubbock is just one of several being held across Texas.

According to a press release from the Texas General Land Office and the Veterans Land Board, those attending will be able to visit with officials on state programs and more.

Officials from the Texas Veterans Land Board (VLB) will be on hand to provide information on state programs including land, home and home improvement loans, as well as Texas State Veterans Homes and Cemeteries for Veterans and military members in Texas. As an intergovernmental partnership event between the VLB, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Texas Veterans Commission, the benefits fair will provide Veterans and military members with access to representatives that can assist with  pending claims, health care needs, education and employment benefits, and much more.

Veterans wishing to discuss pending claims with VA officials should bring pertinent case information, including claim numbers, if available. Veterans, military members and their families are encouraged to drop in to learn more about their benefits any time between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
