This Veteran’s Day, there’s lots of good news about veterans benefits, though many vets may not have heard. If you're a veteran, this roundup from USAGov can help you learn about important changes to existing programs and discover new services you’ve earned.
One is a new website designed to simplify access to benefits and services, and help vets get things done. On Vets.gov, which is still growing, you can find:
Health care -- Most veterans can complete the new online health care application in 15 minutes and be enrolled within a week.
Education benefits-- Evaluate schools to make the most of education benefits with the GI Bill Comparison Tool.
VA.gov is still the current source for other valuable benefits information, such as:
Burial and memorial benefits, including military honors for vets and burial in veterans cemeteries across the U.S.
Specific new health care services:
