NAAV Assists Veterans and Their Families with VA Claims and Benefits.
Veterans of the United States armed forces may be eligible for a broad range of benefits and services provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
These benefits are legislated in Title 38 of the United States Code. For a summary of these benefits effective Jan. 1, 2012, visit www.va.gov/. eBenefits is a joint VA Department of Defense Web portal that provides resources and self-service capabilities to Service members, Veterans, and their families to apply, research, access, and manage their VA and military benefits and personal information through a secure Internet connection. This portal is located at www.ebenefits.va.gov. Veterans just register for an eBenefits account at one of two levels: Basic or Premium. A Premium account allows access to personal data in VA and DoD systems, apply for benefits online, check the status of claims, update address records, and much more. The Basic account allows access to information entered into eBenefits by the Veteran only. Basic accounts cannot access VA or DoD systems.
