IAVA Keeping Track of All Things Veterans re: Shutdown

by Rachel Baker on October 9, 2013

Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) is the first and largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. They have done some amazingly great things for veterans since their inception in 2004. Their newest way of helping veterans is providing an informative and updated FAQ for Veterans and offering assistance in navigating how the shutdown affects all aspects of a veteran’s life.

Last Updated: 1900 October 7th with new information regarding possible VA furloughs and other benefits — We have heard from a number of veterans concerned about the impact of a possible government shutdown. The following information is based on the latest guidance from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). We will update as new information becomes available.

The federal government has officially shut down, leaving just enough resources to cover the essential services of the government. While veterans may be more protected than other constituencies, a government shutdown does not bode well for top priorities within the veterans’ community.
