ATTENTION: Starting Monday, May 11, and continuing 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.

Because your time is valuable, we strongly suggest that you call ahead for an appointment.  This will minimize any wait time and allow us to contact you if your benefits representative will be out of the office.  If you are filing a claim, it will also allow your benefits representative to advise you what to bring in order to complete your claim in a single visit.
When you call for an appointment or other service, your benefits representative may be with a veteran or on another call.  Please leave a detailed message with your full name, phone number and a brief message.  Calls will be returned in the order they are received. If you prefer, you may contact your representative at the email address above. 

If you have an emergency that cannot wait for a return call from your benefits counselor, please contact:
