Veterans of the United States armed forces may be eligible for a broad range of benefits and services provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Some of these benefits may be utilized while on active duty. These benefits are codified in Title 38 of the United States Code.
For years the VA has printed benefit booklets and distributed them to the bases for Transition Workshops. Within the last couple of years they have stopped providing the booklets, but you can download the current print version online.
This booklet contains a summary of these benefits. Click on the image at left to download a PDF copy of the 2016 version of the Federal Benefits for Veterans Dependents and Survivors. You can also view the online version by going to http://www1.va.gov/OPA/publications/benefits_book.asp.
