Federal Benefits for Veterans

fed_benefits_cover.jpgTitle 38 of the U.S. Code mandates certain benefits for returning veterans such as educational assistance, medical care, and employment services. The U.S. Government Printing Office has recently released a new guide to these resources, the Federal Benefits for Veterans, Dependents, and Survivors (also available in Spanish).

In this you can learn about a variety of veteran benefits, including:

  • home loan guarantees which can be used to buy or repair a home, purchase a condo, or refinance an existing home loan
  • programs for homeless veterans
  • medical benefits for dependents of veterans
  • veterans benefits provided by other federal agencies

    Utah's Department of Veterans Affairs has a description of Utah veterans' benefits available on their website, such as tuition waivers or reduced-fee UTA bus passes.

    The Utah State Courts' self help page on Military and Veterans has links to legal information and assistance for servicemembers facing civil litigation. We blogged about this page earlier this year.
