The New Jersey Veterans Benefits Guide continues a tradition to provide relevant information to New Jersey’s Veterans community. Keeping you informed is part of the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (NJDMAVA) continuing outreach efforts. Through extensive research and preparation, NJDMAVA has assembled valuable material into this edition of the Veterans Benefits Guide. Many New Jersey Veterans are unaware of the numerous federal and state program benefits, entitlements and services they have earned in defense of this great nation. Our website at www.nj.gov/military/veterans acts as a portal to assist New Jersey’s Veterans in obtaining information they need to access benefits and services more efficiently and effectively. We encourage you to contact the Department’s Veterans Service Officers for additional information and assistance when applying for a program, benefit or entitlement.
