VA Transitional Assistance

Mission Statement:

The purpose of the Transition Assistance Advisor (TAA) program is to provide a professional in each state/territory to serve as the statewide point of contact to assist Service members in accessing Veterans Affairs’ health care services and benefits. Each TAA also provides assistance in obtaining entitlements through the Military Health System and access to community resources.


We help you navigate through the vast myriad of benefits and entitlements in the DoD and VA system.  We take the time to assist you and not toss you into the “800 number desert!”  We will educate you so you will understand the benefits you have earned, such as:

* Guard entitlements and access for healthcare in both the DoD and VA medical facilities.

* TRICARE benefits while you are on active duty and when you return as an OIF/OEF Veteran.

* Important deadlines that require your action while still on active duty and as a Veteran so  

   you do not miss these time-sensitive opportunities.

* VA dental care programs (time-sensitive benefit).

* Referral for counseling services for you and your family that will not affect your career.

* Referral for possible compensation for injuries or illness sustained in OEF and OIF.

* Insurance information such as SGLI, TSGLI, FSGLI.

* Rehabilitative care management needed to help you return to a normal lifestyle; CBWTU


* Assistance with job search and connection with ESGR for rights of employment.

* Assistance in connecting you to the Veterans Benefits Administration and Veterans    

   Services Organizations to file disability/compensation claims.

* Assistance in the event of financial hardship, healthcare issues, or unemployment needs.

* Assistance with locating your medical records, DD 214s and other needed documents.
