From Chuck Weber, your Veteran Service Officer...
Federal Benefits for Veterans, Dependents and Survivors

Ever wonder where you can find out about all of your benefits as a military veteran?  Does it seem a daunting task to find someone who can fill you in?  Are you frustrated with the never ending changes? Always calling the wrong number for help?


One-stop shopping for an updated overview of all of your federal benefits, and how to get into the system to use them, can be found at www.va.gov/getstarted .


The Federal Benefits Handbook will give a synopsis of each program as well as contact info for your local VA offices.  This used to a printed book that was updated annually and could be picked up at any VA office.  The online version is much more current, but a few printed copies are still available at the VA.  The Welcome Kit/Quick Start Pamphlet will help you navigate the VA for your benefits.  Both publications are easily downloaded and printed.
