Benefits and Resources

Old sailor in uniformThrough the Programs and Services Division at MDVA Veterans from all eras of conflict are connected to important benefits and resources earned through service. We recognize that while Veterans have made tremendous sacrifices for this country, families serve too and are eligible for many federal, state and local programs.

Veterans Benefits Services Disclosure

The Veterans Benefits Services Disclosure Notice was passed into law during the 2017 state legislative session, and is pursuant Minnesota Statute 197.6091

Beginning August 1, 2017, private and for-profit providers who assist Veterans with benefits services and claims are required to provide a disclosure notice and obtain a signature for all Veteran clients. The disclosure serves as a method to notify Veterans that they are able to receive Veterans benefits services at no cost from federally chartered Veterans Service Organizations, the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs and Minnesota County Veterans Service Officers.

Providers who fail to comply with section 197.6091 are subject to a civil penalty up to $1,000 for each violation. Civil penalties collected will be deposited in the Support Our Troops fund, which supports Veterans and families across the state.
