Veteran Owned Small Business Procurement Advantage

I’ve had the opportunity recently to discuss ancillary benefits for a veteran now rated at 100% permanently and totally disabled before the Department of Veterans Affairs.   Without exception, each veteran would prefer good health over money; however, veterans are appreciative of financial benefits available to both the disabled veteran and their family.  These benefits include inter alia entitlement to CHAMPVA, entitlement to Dependents’ Educational Assistance (DEA), and property tax exemption/abatement (in many states).

One often overlooked benefit is the advantage in procurement contracts for disabled-veteran-owned small businesses.  Many states offer similar advantages for disabled-veteran owned businesses.  More information can be found at the SBA website at http://www.sba.gov/content/veteran-service-disabled-veteran-owned.

The Veterans’ Law section at Fink Rosner Ershow-Levenberg offers nationwide representation at all levels of the VA administrative process, as well as in the Federal court system, at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. I focus solely on Veterans’ law and Veteran-related issues, claims and benefits and can offer a unique perspective as a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
