Eligibility for most Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits is based upon discharge from active military service under other than dishonorable conditions. However, some military personnel may be eligible for  certain VA benefits while on active duty when they have  completed:

  • 90 days of service during wartime and/or conflict periods OR

  • Two (2) years of military service since 1980  OR

  • 181 days of service during peacetime

If you are seeking VA benefits for the first time after release from active duty, you must send a copy of you military discharge (DD form 214, or other discharge document) with your application for benefits. You may file your application and discharge document with any VA regional office. When leaving the military, Transition Assistance Programs can help with your transition into civilian life.
