What You’ll Need

Please contact your local DAV office to request an application be submitted on your behalf. All applications must be submitted by a DAV-NSO.

Additional Information

The PenFed Foundation works with Clearpoint to help us provide financial counseling for our veterans. Once the application is submitted by a DAV-National Service Officer, PenFed will refer the veteran to Clearpoint. Upon completion of financial counseling, and the final approval process, a check will be sent out directly to the creditor or the landlord within 7 to 10 business days.
