New Handbook Updates Veterans Benefits

A new edition of the popular handbook "Federal Benefits for Veterans and Dependents" by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) updates the rates for certain federal payments and outlines a variety of programs and benefits for American veterans. Most of the nation's 25 million veterans qualify for some VA benefits, which range from health care to burial in a national cemetery. The 2005 edition provides an overview of programs and services for veterans provided by other Federal agencies. Click here to download the handbook.

In spite of the fact that the Bush administration is cutting back benefits to veterans, a variety of benefits are still available to vets - but you have to ask for them, before they disappear too!
