General Information
Description of ServiceVeterans of the United States armed forces may be eligible for a broad range of programs and services provided by the VA. Eligibility for most VA benefits is based upon discharge from active military service under other than dishonorable conditions, and certain benefits require service during wartime. If you are new to the VA, the Federal Benefits for Veterans, Dependents and Survivors booklet will help you get started.

The VA’s More Than a Number identity protection program provides information to educate Veterans and their beneficiaries on how to protect themselves from identity theft. On this website, you will find a wide range of information on identity theft, how to spot it, ways to prevent it, and what to do if you suspect you are a victim. You can also browse through links to other useful identity theft resources from across the Web.

In addition, we have created a toll-free Identity Theft Resource Line for Veterans and their beneficiaries to call for more information or if they suspect that their identities may have been compromised.
