The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) offers a wide range of programs and services to provide Veterans of the United States Uniformed Services the support they need to live happily in civilian life. As long as you were not discharged from active military service dishonorably, you may qualify for any number of the available Veteran benefits, from health care to education, affordable home loans and more.
Veteran benefits are administered through the Veteran Health Administration (VHA), and the Veteran Benefits Administration (VBA). Here, learn about ways you and your family can receive cash benefits to help pay for education, or to compensate for injury and disability through the VBA.
As a Veteran — whether you are older and have been out of active-duty service for a long time, or are younger and have recently been discharged — there are countless ways the VBA can provide support for you and your family.
There are thousands of Veterans Affairs (VA) locations around the country, in all 50 states and in U.S. territories. VA healthcare centers and urgent care centers can be found throughout the country where you can receive the medical care you need, as well as State Veteran Affairs Offices where you can access the countless benefits you have earned through your service.
So, to access the benefits you need, you can visit any VA office or clinic around the country, you can call both federal and state Veterans benefits phone numbers and talk to a VA agent, or you can access your Veterans benefits online.
One of the primary ways you can get support through Veteran benefits is to collect cash payments. Whether it’s compensation for a disability you acquired while on duty, to help you pay for your children’s — or your own — college or graduate degree, or to start a new business, or to help fund a new home there are a variety of ways to receive cash assistance through VA benefits.
There are also plenty of Veteran benefits for spouses and children, veteran benefits for widows or widowers, and Veteran benefits for other dependents and survivors.
