If you have members that want to be an accredited representative with a Veterans Service Organization (VSO), they can apply for employment with GDVS when vacancies become available. GDVS Field Offices and the Appeals Division are accredited to file  claims for veterans with POA with: Georgia Department of Veterans Service, American Legion, VFW, American Red Cross, American Ex-POWs, Jewish War Veterans, Retired Enlisted Association, and Fleet Reserve Association.  GDVS files all claims and appeals for the American Legion in Georgia. Other states and departments do things differently.

Other VSOs within the State of Georgia file claims for veterans: AMVETs, DAV, Wounded Warrior etc. so you may be able to apply for employment with them and become accredited with them .
