Accessing Funds From the VA for a Wheelchair Van
Did you know that you can access funds from the VA to purchase a wheelchair accessible van?
We proudly support our veterans at United Access. In order to fully support you and your needs, we work closely with the Department of Veteran Affairs regarding automobile grants for handicap-accessible vehicles. United Access offers the expertise necessary to assist you in processing wheelchair van grants through the VA. Further, we proudly support our customers and employees who served this country. We offer support by fundraising, supporting local events, and volunteering with organizations dedicated to honoring our veterans.
The Veterans’ Administration offers a one-time veterans automobile grant of $21,488.29 for 100% Service Connected Veterans that meet stringent guidelines. Talk to your VA counselor or prosthetics doctor for more information. Veterans who are 100% Service Connected are eligible for two handicap vehicle conversions every four years or one every two years. Veterans that trade their modified vehicle in every two years typically have less out-of-pocket expense getting into a new wheelchair van than a veteran that trades at a later date. The Veterans’ Administration will allow for the purchase of a pre-owned wheelchair van using their depreciation schedule for reimbursement.
