In the early 1980s contaminants were found in two wells that provided water at Camp Lejeune, N.C. It is estimated that the contaminants were in the water supply from the mid-1950’s until February 1985 when the wells were shut down. VA has established a presumption of service connection for eight diseases for eligible Vets who served on the base during that period. This rule was published TODAY (January 13, 2017), and will be effective either 60 days after publication in the Federal Register, or following conclusion of the 60-day Congressional Review, whichever is later. The link below provides all the details.

When you leave service, you lose your SGLI. But if you're newly separated or soon separating, don't miss out on the chance to convert your SGLI to VGLI! You have 1 year and 120 days from your date of separation to apply for VGLI!

The celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday has become not only a day of remembrance, but also a day of service.

King’s dream represents our country’s highest ideal — that all men and women are created equal — an idea secured by all those who stepped forward to defend our great nation. For duty to country knows only three colors – red, white and blue.

At VA, we can say with certainty and pride that our charge is to ensure VA serves all Veterans in the way they want and need to be served. You can help. For information on volunteering at VA, visit the VA Voluntary Services website at http://www.volunteer.va.gov. #MLKDay

75 years ago today, 2,403 Americans were killed in the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Today, we remember and honor their service.

We are the Veterans Benefits Administration. We administer your federal VA benefits. Did you know that your home state also offers benefits to resident Veterans and their families? These benefits vary from state to state and sometimes include tax exemptions, free hunting and fishing licenses, special license plates, reduced cost vehicle registrations and many more. This page will link you up with your state Veterans agency:
