BDD Locations and Contacts

As you get ready to separate or retire from the military, make sure you are taking the necessary steps to prepare for your future. If you’re within 180 days of discharge, the VFW can help.

The VFW’s Benefits Delivery at Discharge (BDD) program has offices located on or near major military installations across the county to help you obtain your VA benefits and entitlements. Our BDD representatives are ready to guide you through the veterans’ claims process, conduct physical examinations prior to your separation, and answer the questions you may have on education and medical benefits.
