Veteran Affairs


The Department of Veterans Services (DVS) is organized into five service delivery sections – benefits, veterans education, care centers, veterans cemeteries, and the Virginia Wounded Warrior Program. Four citizen boards work closely with the agency to support the effective delivery of services to Virginia’s veterans – the Board of Veterans Services, the Joint Leadership Council of Veterans Service Organizations, the Veterans Services Foundation, and the Veterans Care Center Advisory Committee.

Benefits Services

Benefits Services assists veterans of the armed forces and their dependents in accessing federal and state veterans benefits. DVS operates 21 benefits services offices throughout the Commonwealth where veterans and their dependents receive free assistance in developing and filing claims for federal veterans benefits. This section also certifies eligibility for the Virginia Military Survivors and Dependents Education Program
