Monthly Veterans Outreach Events
In a partnership with the Pennsylvania American Legion, I will be offering veterans affairs outreach hours in my Johnstown office on the third Tuesday of the month from 2-4:30 p.m. Available dates include:

Dec. 17

The service officer will coordinate requests for assistance by veterans in:
  •   VA claims for disability compensation.
  •   Disability increase and rating decision appeals.
  •   Veteran or surviving spouse pension.
  •   Burial and death benefits.
  •   Addition of dependents.
  •   Dependency and indemnity compensation.
  •   Other veterans’ benefits.

Veterans do not need to be a member of the American Legion to receive these services. Please call my district office at 814-536-9818 to schedule an appointment with the field service officer.

Tuesday, Jan. 21 (and the third Tuesday of every month) - a representative from the Pennsylvania American Legion visits Rep. Rigby’s Johnstown district office from 2-4:30 p.m. The office is located at 1340 Franklin St. in Johnstown. Veterans, their families and caregivers are invited to bask questions about programs such as disability compensation claims, veteran or surviving spouse pensions, DD214s and burial and death benefits.
