Veterans Benefits

ATTENTION:  Starting Monday, May 11, and until further notice, there is reduced access to Veterans Benefits Representatives due to COVID-19 requirements. Staff have been reassigned to help reduce the backlog of Unemployment Insurance Claims.  KDVA Benefits staff will still be returning calls and filing claims, but there may be delays and wait times.  We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

KDVA provides professional help free of charge to veterans in obtaining and using federal and state benefits to which they are entitled.  We help veterans and their dependents make successful claims for benefits, privileges, rights and other veteran services.  Benefits include access to veterans nursing homes, burial with honors in veterans cemeteries, benefits counseling, and specific assistance for homeless and women veterans.  

Find out if the person helping you with your claim is accredited by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as a benefits counselor.
