Benefits for Veterans

The Department of Veterans Affairs offers a wide range of benefits to veterans and their survivors. As a general rule, a veteran is defined as someone who served in the armed forces of the United States. Reservists and National Guard members are generally not considered veterans for benefits purposes unless they were called up to active duty. For some benefits, up to 2 years or more of service is required. This is not a comprehensive list of all benefits available for veterans and their survivors but we cover here the programs most people are interested in.
