Since its establishment in 1945, the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs (IDVA) has remained focused on aiding and assisting "Hoosier" veterans, and qualified family members or survivors, who are eligible for benefits or advantages provided by Indiana and the U.S. government.

Indiana owes a great debt to its veterans, past and present, for their personal sacrifices and dedicated service. 75 Hoosiers (2 still living) have been awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor in testimony to their courage and sacrifices.

Today, Indiana is home to nearly 550,000 veterans. 52,000 veterans and survivors collect disability compensation or pension payments. There is no greater honor than to serve those who have given so much.

We hope that you will find our web site user friendly and helpful in providing information about veteran benefits, activities, and organizations. Please feel free to contact this office or one of the 91 County Service Officers listed in our Directory who are ready to serve you in your home county. You're also welcome to download the free State and Federal Benefit Information brochure.

We invite you to visit the following web page which pays tribute to the Hoosiers who have given their lives in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom during the Global War on Terrorism OEF-OIF Indiana Honor Roll.

Thank you for visiting and we hope you will return again.
