Service Work

Per Chapter 35B.6 subsection 1 of the Code of Iowa, Service Work is, but is not limited to the following:
Service work can be as simple as giving out the 1-800 number for the VA Regional Office in Des Moines or as complicated as filing a 21-526 form for a non-service connected pension with Aid & Attendance benefits. Along with this form, the service officer must review to see what state and or county benefits the client may be eligible for.

VA Form 21-526 takes a minimum of 2 hours to complete, but normally takes 3-4 hours (at different scheduled appointments). This form is four pages with a fifth page attached as a release of information. To complete this form, you need to obtain a discharge, birth certificate(s), marriage certificate(s), divorce decree(s), income verification, doctor’s statement, and the cost of the nursing home. This form is also used to file for a non-service-connected pension and service-connected compensation.
