OUR CORE VALUES

Our Core Values define what it means to be ELITE. 

These Core Values apply to ALL of us at VA Claims Insider. 

Empathy: Empathy is at the heart of who we are. It is the key to providing Elite-level customer service. We will listen, respect, relate, and seek understanding with each other and the veterans we serve.

Learning: Learning is both a mindset and a philosophy. We must always grow and adapt, learn and apply knowledge, be resourceful, do and be more, and constantly challenge the status quo. Nobody knows it all and there is no such thing as “good enough.”

Integrity: Integrity means doing the right thing, all the time, even if nobody’s looking. We will make mistakes, but we will never sacrifice our integrity. Without integrity, the rest of our core values don’t matter.

Teamwork: If we want to go far, we must go together. We will build-up, support, and be accountable to each other in all things. We will collaborate as a team, and the best ideas will win. The team is more important than our individual wants and needs.

Enthusiasm: Enthusiasm is the driving force behind our culture. It is the energy and passion that fuels everything we do. It is a contagious positive attitude. It is what makes our craft fun and exciting.

OUR CREDO

The Insiders Creed

What is a Credo?

Credo comes from the Latin word meaning “I believe.” But the word can be applied to any set of principles. This is our creed.

The Insider’s Creed Text:

I am a Veteran.
I am an INSIDER.
I answered my Nation’s call.
I served my Country with honor.

I am a Veteran.
I am an INSIDER.
My mission is to fight for, and win, the VA benefits that are rightfully mine by law.
I will proceed in this mission with integrity and vulnerability.
While I may be injured, I am neither helpless nor hopeless.

I am a Veteran.
I am an INSIDER.
I am a member of an ELITE-level movement of Veterans helping Veterans around the world.
I will support and defend our movement from all enemies.
I will never quit, nor will I let fellow Insiders quit.
I will never falter, and I will not fail!

OUR PRAYER

The Insider’s Prayer Text:

INSIDERS! 

Let us go forth now with an unshakeable purpose.

Help us to remain intently focused on our calling that God the Father accepts as pure and true:

To support, defend, and care for those brave men and women who shall have borne the battle.

And in this noblest pursuit, lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from all evil.

Amen!
