The Kansas Commission on Veterans Affairs (KCVAO) continues to help our state's Veterans and their families to improve the quality of their lives. From helping Veterans to file claims for education, medical or other benefits, to assisting them in obtaining earned medals and military awards, KCVAO is here to serve you. The wide array of available programs and services are provided by a grateful nation and state.

To help obtain these benefits, the KCVAO provides Veteran Service Representatives (VSRs) free-of-charge to assist Veterans and their families with applying for benefits.

State VSRs are available in strategic locations across Kansas or through grants provided to National Veterans Service Organizations, such as the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars.

The KCVAO Veteran Services Program can help you file VA claims for:

  • Education Benefits
  • Non-Service Connected Pension Benefits
  • Service-Connected Disability Compensation Benefits
  • Spouse and Dependent Benefits
  • State VA Benefits
  • VA Health Care Benefits

If you have a claim or would like to learn more about Veteran benefits, contact a local Veteran Service Representative or call us toll free at (800) 513-7731. As Veteran advocates, KCVAO is committed to assisting Veterans and their families with obtaining the benefits they have earned as a result of a Veteran’s honorable military service.

"It is a true honor to advocate for the hundreds of thousands of Veterans and family members in Kansas! The dedication of our Veterans Home and Soldiers Home workers, Cemetery employees, and Veteran Services Representatives is unmatched when it comes to serving those who served." – Eric Rohleder, Deputy Director, KCVAO
