February 19, 2020
The VA Welcome Kit makes it easier for service members, Veterans, family members, Caregivers and Survivors to understand the many different benefits and services offered by VA.
“The Welcome Kit can help guide you whether it’s time to go to school, get a job, buy a house, get healthcare, retire or make plans for your own care as you age,” said VA Secretary Robert Wilkie.
People can learn how to apply for VA healthcare, a disability rating, education benefits and more.
While still serving or a Veteran, there are many VA benefits and services available. The VA Welcome Kit includes handy one-page Quick Start Guides focused on specific topics. VA regularly updates the Welcome Kit online as new information becomes available.
