September 22, 2019 --- The Joint Service Committee (JSC) is a group of dedicated veterans that assist other veterans with their disability claims, healthcare issues and housing problems. The JSC has helped over 2,000 veterans negotiate the difficult path to secure the benefits they have earned resulting in roughly $10 Million (monthly payments) and over $7 Million (retroactive payments).
Success Story #1
A veteran with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder/Military sexual Trauma (PTSD/MST). The veteran had been sexually assaulted by several higher-ranking supervisors. Those rapists isolated the veteran for their own self-gratification over a prolonged time period. When the veteran became too psychologically damaged, they kicked the veteran out of the military with an "Other than Honorable Discharge.”
After years of bouncing from one menial job to another, making less that poverty wages and suffering with profound psychological disabilities, this veteran sought assistance from the JSC.
The result: a 90% service-connected disability rating.
Success Story #2
A Navy veteran with Parkinson’s disease and dementia, needed assistance to get admitted to the Puget Sound Regional Medical Center for supervised care and treatment.
The JSC diligently worked with both the VA medical care providers and the Veterans Benefit Administration on compensation for the veteran’s service-connected disabilities.
The result: a 100% service-connected rating, and a determination of housebound status netting the veteran approximately $3,800 in monthly compensation.
The JSC meets at the Fleet Reserve Association building on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week (23003 56th Ave W, Mountlake Terrace). For additional information or to set up and appointment call (206) 963-2864.
