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 WVDVA benefits offices across the state of West Virginia. 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.
