VETERANS BENEFITS

The Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) administers several programs. Veterans who think that they may be eligible for benefits can receive information and applications by contacting the Veterans Administration, the military unit personnel in charge of education benefits, or the Financial Aid Office. Dependents Educational Assistance (DEA) is provided for children of veterans who died in service as a result of a disability received while in service during World War I, World War II, the Korean Conflict, or the Vietnam conflict. Students between the ages of 18 and 26 (under certain conditions, to age 31) who believe they may be eligible for these benefits are asked to contact the office of the Veterans Administration.
