Veterans of the United States armed forces may be eligible for a broad range of programs and services provided by the VA. Eligibility for most VA benefits is based upon discharge from active military service under other than dishonorable conditions, and certain benefits require service during wartime. If you are new to the VA, the booklet “Federal Benefits for Veterans, Dependents and Survivors” will help you get started.
You may be eligible for VA benefits if you are a:
- Veteran, Veteran's dependent;
- Surviving spouse, child or parent of a deceased Veteran;
- Uniformed service member;
- Present or former reservist or National Guard member.
For more information on veterans' benefits, please visit the Department of Veterans Affairs webpage “Veteran Services.”
