Benefits / Financial Resources - Overview

Learn what benefits and financial resources may be available to you.

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
