The Huntington Regional Office (VARO) has teamed up with the State of West Virginia Department of Veterans Assistance (WVDVA) to launch Virtual Access Sites (VAS) at the WVDVA Charleston, Lewisburg, Logan and Wheeling benefits offices. The VAS provides Veterans and Claimants with a comfortable, private space equipped with internet access and the help and technology needed to meet virtually with VARO staff via a secure video connection.
If you have limited internet connectivity at home, don't feel comfortable setting up a virtual meeting by yourself, or simply don't want to take the trip to Huntington, you can drop in the WVDVA benefits offices Monday through Friday, between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm and they'll set you up in a virtual meeting with a benefits counselor at the Huntington Regional Office.
The WVDVA and the Huntington VARO hope to have Virtual Access Sites set up at all 15 WV benefits offices by the endo the calendar year, so wherever you live, you'll soon have access to this service.
