About Us

Veterans Today Live is a platform dedicated to veteran benefits.

We provide information on the range of benefits that veterans can access to support their transition back to civilian life. We assist service members to resettle to civilian after defending their country through military service. Ranging from home loans, education assistance, life insurance, and health care, among others, the list of veteran benefits is long. Veterans have sacrificed their lives and time to keep the nation and its beliefs safe. President Lincoln promised “to care for him who shall have borne the battle, including his widow, and orphan.” The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs honors this promise. A veteran, a uniformed service member; a disabled service member, his child, spouse, or parent of a deceased veteran; may be eligible for VA benefits. The VA works hard to understand the various and unique issues veterans encounter. It assists veterans and eligible dependents to apply and obtain education, compensation, home loan, healthcare, pension, insurance, employment, vocational rehabilitation, and memorial and burial benefits. We provide veterans with the information they need to make important choices regarding their finances, family, and even career. The different types of benefits available to veterans include

Type of Benefits Available to Veterans


Wartime veterans have access to tax-free benefits through pension. You must be aged at least 65 years and have limited to no income, or dealing with permanent or total disability due to a cause not associated with service.

Housebound veterans or those with serious disability and entitled to receive Pension may also be eligible for an extra Housebound or Aid and Attendance benefit.

Disability Compensation

Veterans with a disability linked to service are eligible for a tax-free benefit. The disability must have begun during service or got aggravated by service.

Your disability must be associated with military service to receive this benefit. It’s also important that your discharge from service occurred under anything except dishonorable conditions.

Education and Training

– Veterans or service members taking up a training program or pursuing education are eligible for this benefit. The education benefit programs cover National Guard, Active Duty, and Reserve service members and veterans.

The programs include Montgomery GI Bill-Active Duty, Post-9/11 GI Bill, Montgomery GI Bill-Selected Reserve, and the Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP).

The Post-9/11 GI Bill program offers financial aid towards books, tuition and fees, and other education supplies. It also includes a housing allowance. Service members who’re eligible for this benefit can transfer unused funds to support an eligible child or spouse.

The other benefit programs also include a monthly allowance to support various costs of education.

Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment VET Success

This benefit targets veterans with disabilities linked to service. The VA program assists service members to prepare for, apply, obtain and sustain suitable work employment.

Veterans are first assessed to help them determine a suitable career path to consider. The program offers job-search help, vocational counseling, and services related to training and education to support veterans in their search for employment.

The career counseling benefits is also available for veterans who’ve recently left military service. Veterans with disability, even if it’s not linked to service, and those using VA education benefits are also eligible for the career counseling benefits.

Life Insurance

Veterans and service members also have access to valuable insurance benefits. Veterans get peace of mind with this benefit. Military service involves lots of risks, hence the need to protect service members and veterans, including eligible family members.

The Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance (SGLI) benefit offers low-cost cover to members and veterans. Totally disabled members can extend their coverage.

Veterans’ Group Life Insurance (VGLI) enables members to convert their SGLI insurance cover to a lifetime cover that’s renewable after leaving military service.

Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance Traumatic Injury Protection (TSGLI) is an automatic cover that’s part of SGLI cover. It offers service members payments they can use to offset losses such as blindness, amputations, and paraplegia, resulting from traumatic injuries.

Veterans’ Mortgage Life Insurance (VMLI) allows disabled veterans to access mortgage protection. The veteran must be approved for a VA Specially Adapted Housing Grant to receive this benefit.

About 120 days to one year after leaving service, veterans can convert their SGLI to VGLI. If you make an application within 240 days for this benefit, you don’t have to provide evidence of good health to qualify for VMLI.

Service-Disabled Veteran’s Insurance (S-DVI) offers life cover for veterans with disability related to service. Veterans with total disability are eligible for additional insurance coverage.

Home Loans

Active Duty, National Guard, Veterans, and Reserve Service members are eligible for the home loan benefit program. However, converting SGLI to VGLI home loans is time sensitive.

You don’t need mortgage insurance premiums or down payment to apply for a VA home loan, making its terms favorable. You can buy a manufactured home, a home, a condominium unit, or a lot to hold a manufactured home for personal use, with guaranteed loans.

Guaranteed Loans are paid to guarantee part of loans from private lenders. You can also apply for a home loan to guarantee home repair, improvement or even building.

The Specially Adapted Housing Grants targets military personnel and disabled veterans with severe disability. They receive grant benefits to acquire or adapt suitable housing.

Health Care

Veterans have access to various health care services through this benefit. Burial benefits cover inscribed markers or headstone at any cemetery, burial and memorial services to honor deceased veterans, burial allowances (covers burial and funeral costs), or an American flag to drape a Veteran body’s casket.

Deceased veterans and their eligible dependents can also qualify for burial in a national cemetery. The Veterans Crisis Line offers immediate assistance to veterans in an emotional crisis. Accessible through 1-800-273-8255 /1, the benefits covers, outpatient medical, hospital, prosthetic, nursing home, residential care, domiciliary, treatment for military sexual trauma, addiction treatment, and counseling, among others.

Other VA services include specialized health care for female veteran caregivers, homeless veterans, medical referrals, outreach, vet centers, counseling, and treatment of mental disorders. The spouses and children of deceased veterans are eligible for the Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) for surviving spouses and dependent children. Surviving parents qualify for Parents’ DIC based on their financial need.

They’re also eligible for the Civilian Health and Medical Program of VA (CHAMPVA), a Survivor’s Pension, and the Survivor’s and Dependents’ Educational Assistance Program. At Veterans Today Live, we strive to help fulfil President Lincoln’s promise to care for veterans, including their family members.
