State Benefits for Veterans

State benefits for veterans and their families are provided by each state. Reduced or no cost hunting and fishing licenses, property tax exemptions, help with education and emergency loans are just a few of the benefits that may be available to you. The following table provides links directly to the various state’s benefit listings on their website, except where noted. You should consult a state Veteran Service Officer about your benefits and the best way to apply for them.

Please help us keep these links up to date. If you find that a broken link, or the page no longer lists the state’s benefits for veterans, please let us know by sending us feedback on our contact page.
