Veterans Benefits

Veterans of the United States Armed Forces can get benefits through the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Some of these benefits extend to veterans’ family members. If you or your spouse served in the Armed Forces, you might be able to get: disability compensation, disability pension, medical and dental benefits, education programs, life insurance, and home and small business loans.

The State of Maine has additional benefits for veterans who are also residents of Maine. These benefits include: property tax exemptions, nursing and rehabilitation services, and funeral and burial benefits.
