Important Documents

In order to accelerate delivery of benefits, Veterans seeking a VA benefit for the first time must submit a copy of their service discharge form (DD-214, DD-215, or for World War II Veterans, a WD form), which documents service dates and type of discharge, or provides full name, military service number, dates of service and branch.

The Veteran's service discharge form should be kept in a safe location accessible to the Veteran and next of kin or designated representative. Discharge and DD 214 forms can also be recorded for free at the Travis County’s Clerk’s Office at 5501 Airport Boulevard in Austin. (map)

The following documents will be needed for claims processing related to a Veteran's death:

  1. Veteran's marriage certificate for claims of a surviving spouse or children.
  2. Veteran's death certificate if the Veteran did not die in a VA health care facility.
  3. Children's birth certificates or adoption papers to determine children's benefits.
  4. Veteran's birth certificate to determine parents' benefits.

For additional questions you can call our office or walk-in during normal business hours.
