Benefits / Financial Resources - Overview

If you are struggling financially, you can benefit from learning about income supports provided by the VA and DoD, as well as needs-based benefits available to the general public.

Examples of VA and DoD benefits:

  • VA Disability Compensation
  • GI Bill and related educational and training programs
  • VA home loans
  • dependent and survivor benefits
  • UCX unemployment benefits

But even if you already know about those VA and DoD benefits, you may not realize that other non-military programs may benefit you, including:

  • low-income tax credits
  • food supplements
  • children's health insurance under Medicaid
  • HUD and Rural Housing rental subsidies

We provide information on all of these non-military-related programs, as well. You may want to start with our checklist: Don't Leave Money on the Table
