The Department of Veterans Affairs website offers the Federal Benefits Manual for Veterans and Dependents (1997), details of available benefits, and downloadable benefits forms.

The U.S. Embassy’s Federal Benefits Unit can provide forms and general information and can forward your claims to Veterans Affairs. We also can arrange medical appointments, assist with direct deposit issues and follow up with Veterans Affairs about individual cases, when necessary.
