Neff Discusses New Guidance Affecting Benefits for Veterans

Professor Laurie Forbes Neff, Director of George Mason University School of Law’s Clinic for Legal Assistance to Servicemembers, discusses new guidance from the U.S. Department of Defense regarding service benefits to veterans who are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and who were previously denied benefits due to their discharge status.

“A successful discharge upgrade application will likely open the VA’s doors to a large sub-set of previously denied veterans,” Neff explained in a recent Government Executive article. Neff also spoke on the topic on the talk radio show The National Defense, hosted by Randy Miller and Jerry Newberry, on September 20, 2014.
