Part of our mission is to help veterans identify and access benefits. There is a wide range of county, state, and federal benefits related to education, employment, finance, health care, housing, legal assistance, recreation, taxes, and more. Use our Benefits Expert to help guide you to the benefits you’re interested in or learn about some of the most-used benefits. If you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact your County Veterans’ Service Officer or a State Service Officer.
There are a lot of benefits available for veterans and their family members. Our Benefits Expert will guide you through all the county, state, and federal benefits available to help you find just the ones you are eligible for or interested in.
Most Popular Benefits and Services
Nebraska Veterans’ Aid
Nebraska Veterans’ Aid is available for veterans, spouses, and dependents to help pay for certain items in the event of an emergency.
Waiver of Tuition
Waiver of Tuition can help dependents of eligible veterans get 100% of tuition charges and related fees waived at certain Nebraska universities.
Request a copy of your DD-214 discharge papers, which are required to verify your service when applying for many veterans benefits.
Apply to the Veterans' Registry
The Nebraska Veterans’ Registry allows veterans to voluntarily identify themselves to NDVA to verify eligibility for state benefits. Eligible veterans, including National Guard and Reserve veterans, and active duty service members will also be able to order Military Honor Plates through the Nebraska DMV and request the "Veteran" designation on their Nebraska driver's license, making it easier to get military/veteran discounts at retailers, restaurants, and others who offer them.

We created this guidebook to provide general information on the wide variety of benefits available to veterans and eligible spouses, dependents, and in some cases even parents. We highly encourage you to work with your County Veterans’ Service Officer or the NDVA State Service Office to apply for benefits listed here.
