Info For 100% P&t And Tdiu Id Card Holders

Recommended Posts

I really don't know if this is just general knowledge I didn't know about BUT I thought I should share it anyway

As a disabled vet with a MWR (ID) Card you have access to legal (JAG) on any base in the world (depending on space avilable). We just recently found this out at our local airforce base. We didn't ask we just made an appointment and they agreed to see us. This includes legal assistance in civilian matters as well such as housing, wills, contracts etc. possibly even criminal (but they cannot represent you in a civilian court and would instead refer you to a civilian lawyer)

If the JAG section find they cannot help they can and will refer you to various pro bono civilian programs that can help (or to civilian counsel if your case is not taken by probono resources) . The military Pro Bono Project is one of these programs but you need a referral from JAG to participate. They are affiliated with the American Bar Association's Home Front program that provides free civilian legal counsel to military familes. If you have an ID card you qualify (with a refferral and depending on if your case is taken by there programs).

Though we have not needed to use the pro bono programs, JAG is currently helping us to resolve a bad mortgage problem with FHA and our mortgage company and doing a briliant job too I might add! :-).

So just a heads up that 100% disabled MWR cardholders have access to free legal (contingent upon space avilable).

Edited for clarity.

Hey Carlie,

I don't have any links, I simply went in and showed my card and the JAG office told me this, "Yes you are eligible, If you have an ID you qualify" All I have found online about it is that retirees and there dependents as well as "certain other qualified people and their dependents" are eligible to recieve legal assitance through the JAG office based on space available. I did find some bases that specified they only had legal assistance availibility for active duty personnel at this time. So the best bet it is go in and ask at you local base. We went to Holloman AFB in New Mexico.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
