|We all owe a debt of gratitude to our nation's Veterans.
Most of the benefits provided to our Veterans and their families go through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The first point of contact for veterans receiving federal benefits is the Iowa Veterans Benefits Administration Office or the Iowa City VA Medical Facility. Your Veterans Service Office can help you prepare claim forms, obtain veterans records, and provide information on programs through the VA.
The benefit programs administered by the VA include compensation payment for disabilities or death related to military service, pensions, education and rehabilitiation, home loan guaranty, burial, and a medical care program incorporating nursing homes, clinics, and medical centers.
A more comprehensive list of resources for services and benefits available are listed on this page, which I hope will be helpful in your search. If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to contact my office.
If you are having a problem resolving a claim for benefits from the VA, obtaining a decoration or award you earned during your service, or problems involving any other service or benefit you are entitled and need assistance, please print out my Authorization Form and fax or mail it to my office.
