United States Department of Veterans Affairs
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is one of the fifteen federal executive departments of the United States and governs what is known to be the most comprehensive system of Veterans assistance in the world. The Department was established in 1930 as an exclusively Veteran-focused organization and became a cabinet-level agency in 1989.
The main function of the VA is to support Veterans after their retirement from military duty. Several primary goals include providing benefit and support and preventing Veterans’ homelessness and unemployment. The Department is lead by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs appointed by the president and confirmed by the U.S. Senate and has three sub-administrations within its structure:
- The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is responsible for biomedical research and providing various healthcare to retired military personnel.
- The Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) provides a variety of services including pensions, disability compensation, home loans, insurance as well as educational, burial and compensation benefits.
- The National Cemetery Administration provides burial benefits, memorial services, and maintains VA cemeteries.
