As an AmeriCorps State and National program member, your living allowance should not effect your eligibility for VA Benefits. (National and Community Service Act of 1990, 2009)

If the VA is asking for proof of income please call our office at 918.757.2536 and we will make up a letter for you to submit stating the amount of your living allowance, as well as the official regulations concerning AmeriCorps and VA Benefits eligibility.
