Veteran Support for Handicap Vans, Wheelchair Vehicles, and Mobility Products

When Ralph Braun started The Braun Corporation in 1972, some of his earliest customers were soldiers returning from Vietnam with mobility-limiting injuries. Almost half-a-century later, BraunAbility is still proud and honored to know our mobility products continue to bring mobility freedom to the heroes who fought for our nation.

If you are a veteran with a disability, whether related to your time in service or not, you may be entitled to some level of assistance to help purchase mobility equipment. Read below to learn more.

And veterans,  if you've been waiting for an alternative to an accessible minivan, your wait is over! The BraunAbility Chevrolet Traverse is the most spacious wheelchair SUV ever, and it has style, space, and swagger to spare!

BraunAbility is hands-down the best mobility company out there. The quality is superior, and their customer support team is second-to-none.

Are You Eligible for VA Mobility Benefits?

Navigating the benefits and programs for disabled veterans can be complicated. 

The level of assistance received will depend on several factors, including whether the physical limitation was a direct result of service in the military (service-connected) or unrelated (non-service connected).

Some of the VA programs available to assist in acquiring mobility equipment for qualifying veterans include:

The best way to find out if you qualify for assistance with automotive mobility products is to get in touch with your nearest VA medical center, talk with your local mobility dealer, or email a BraunAbility Veteran Specialist. You may qualify for additional disabled veterans benefits or grants outside of the VA. Learn more at the button below.
