Introduction to Veterans' Benefits

Training Description

Did you know that the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA) is a full-service state agency that assists veterans, their family members and survivors? The department is an advocate for Veterans and their families, and aggressively pursues all county, state and federal benefits and entitlements on their behalf. One of the most common issues preventing Veterans from pursuing benefits, is a lack of knowledge on benefits and entitlements that are available.
