VA Introduces New 'Last Resort' Loan Program to Help Roughly 40,000 Veterans Keep Their Homes

The Department of Veterans Affairs will launch a new program in May designed to help veterans who are in financial dire straits to keep their homes.

The Veterans Affairs Servicing Purchase program, or VASP, will serve as a "last resort" option for former service members who have defaulted on their home loans and aren't eligible for other VA loan assistance programs.

PACT Act claim sharks are targeting veterans at unprecedented rates. If you've been on social media or checked your email inbox recently, you've no doubt received countless solicitations from law firms or agencies advertising their assistance with your VA claim in the wake of the PACT Act.

From our National Veterans Service experts, here are some important things to remember:

  • NEVER PAY for claims assistance. Presumptive claims are straightforward and can easily be handled by any VA-accredited claims representative.
  • File a claim for any PACT Act conditions.
  • Contact a VFW Accredited Service Officer today to discuss the PACT Act and what it means for you.
  • Hold off on committing to a Camp Lejeune lawsuit until VA publishes how the offset will affect your settlement and benefits.
  • If you’ve been fighting for years, you may think a PACT Act claim will be complicated. Good news: Presumptive claims are some of the simplest claims because VA is conceding that your illness happened because you went somewhere bad.

Stay up-to-date with the PACT Act and what it means for your claim by visiting PACTActInfo.org.
