WI Veteran Benefits


These benefits, programs, and services are provided by the State of Wisconsin in order to supplement and complement those provided to veterans by the federal government. These include benefits, programs, and services to assist Wisconsin veterans in enhancing their education and employment, purchasing or remodeling a home in Wisconsin, traveling to federal VA medical appointments, obtaining needed health care services not provided by federal VA health care, overcoming barriers to employment, obtaining needed subsistence assistance in emergency situations, assistance in discharge upgrades, and obtaining medals that were not issued or lost,among many others.

Wisconsin operates several state programs that were traditionally in the domain of the federal government, including veterans’ homes, which provide skilled nursing and assisted living, and veterans cemeteries. Other state programs include a homeless transitional assistance program and a comprehensive, statewide military funeral honors program that includes training, coordination, and services.
