Zwicker & VA to Hold Claims Clinic for Veterans

Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker is partnering with the Department of Veterans Affairs to organize a claims clinic for local veterans.

“Veterans and their families have made so many sacrifices for our nation,” said Zwicker (D-Hunterdon/Mercer/Middlesex/Somerset). “We have an obligation to help them navigate the complex benefits system so that they receive the benefits they’ve earned.”

The Veterans Claims Clinic will be held on Sept. 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hunterdon County Library, located at 314 NJ-12, Flemington, NJ 08822. Check-in will begin at 9:15 a.m., and light refreshments will be served from 9:15 a.m. to 10 a.m.

The clinic will allow veterans and their dependents to learn about benefits and entitlements, submit a claim for benefits or check the status of a pending VA claim. Lillie Nuble, director of the VA’s Newark office, will be available to assist individuals with their VA benefits claims.

“It is my privilege to do all I can to serve these courageous men and women and their families,” said Zwicker. “This forum will provide veterans in our area with a personalized, one-on-one consultation about their benefits claims in a convenient location.”

Interested parties may contact Assemblyman Zwicker’s office at 609-454-3147 or asmzwicker[at]njleg.org with questions or concerns.
