Benefits & Claims

DMVA has a devoted team of professionals committed to ensuring that all those who served –and their loved ones –are made aware of and maximize all the benefits and resources available.  DMVA has qualified benefits specialists in 12 offices throughout the state, an established relationship with County Veterans Officers which are in most counties in the state, and an established relationship with the Federal Department of Veterans Affairs.  We work to ensure that veterans are appropriately served. 

“Every veteran should get every benefit that he or she has earned and we are here to help every veteran get every benefit that they have earned. We are facilitators, not gatekeepers. We have a different mindset. We cut the red tape.”  -Larry D. Hall, Secretary – DMVA
