Veterans Benefits

What’s the most popular Veterans Benefit offered in Kentucky? 

The most underused? 

The newest or most unique?


Do you know?  You don’t have to guess, because the answer is here.


Last month, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs asked all 50 state Departments of Veterans Affairs to answer five questions about our benefits and services.  Then the USDVA put the 50 answers to each question together in a blog, so everyone could see in one place what other states think about their own benefits and services.


The first blog lists answers to the question: What is your most popular benefit?


Here is the blog with the answer from KDVA and 49 other states.

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.
