United Access Veterans Support & Benefits

United Access is proud to support our nation’s Veterans. We help Veterans learn about benefits for which they may be eligible, these include the 1394 and 4502 Vehicle Grants through the Veteran Affairs or the VA. Together with physical therapists, case managers, driver evaluators, physicians, and mobility solutions manufacturers, we recommend the best equipment and solution for our valued Veterans.

Thank A Veteran

Help us say thank you to our veterans by sharing your words of support and appreciation. 

"Serving our nation's veterans is our greatest honor, whether through supporting our local PVA chapters to ensure veterans have access to programs and resources that improve their quality of life by helping them find their ideal mobility solutions. Veterans have served to protect our freedom and it is our privilege to help them discover their mobility freedom."
John Beering, President, United Access

Veterans Benefits Eligibility 

At United Access, we proudly support our Veterans. We work closely with the Department of Veteran Affairs to best support you and your needs. United Access offers expertise in working with the VA on automotive grants for wheelchair accessible vehicles. We celebrate our customers and employees who are Veterans by supporting local events and volunteering with organizations that work to honor our Veterans.  

The VA offers a program that includes a new wheelchair van for disabled veterans every two years to Veterans who are 100% Service Connected. The Veterans Administration offers a one-time automobile grant of $23,355.72 for that meet stringent guidelines. Veterans that trade their conversion vehicle every two years typically have less out-of-pocket expense getting into a new wheelchair van. Talk to your VA counselor or prosthetics doctor for more information on this opportunity.

2021 PVA Corporate Patriot Award

In May 2021, the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) announced United Access and the Karyn and Richard May Foundation as the recipients of the 2021 PVA Corporate Patriot Award. 

The PVA Corporate Patriot Award recognizes a donor’s significant contribution toward furthering the goals and mission of PVA and its chapters/regions through financial support and resource commitment over the past five years. United Access was nominated by the ST. Louis PVA Gateway Chapter.

“United Access and the Karyn and Richard May Foundation’s generosity have significantly enhanced our ability to carry out our mission to support deserving veterans with spinal cord injuries or diseases,” said Stanley D. Brown, national director and president, PVA Gateway Chapter. “Their support has enabled us to provide grants for accessible vehicles and housing, as well as sponsor recreational events that help veterans live life to the fullest.” 

United Access has supported various PVA events and programs, from golf tournaments to the St. Louis VA Local Wheelchair Games, for the past 20 years. Additionally, in 2017 the newly formed Karyn and Richard May Foundation made a gift of $20,000 to the PVA Gateway Chapter.
