VFW’s Benefits Delivery at Discharge (BDD) program ensures separating
and retiring active-duty military personnel receive assistance in obtaining their VA
entitlements and benefits upon discharge.
BDD representatives guide military personnel through the veterans’ claims process and conduct physical examinations prior to their separation from active-duty. They are also ready to answer questions about education and medical benefits, as well as VA home loans.
The VFW has BDD offices located on or near major military installations across the country. Service
members within 180 days of discharge can contact a VFW BDD representative to get
the process underway.
VFW’s BDD program launched in 2001 and is a cooperative initiative with the
Pentagon and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
