Post-9/11 Veteran Service Bonus Available

The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs has a long history of awarding service bonuses to Minnesota Veterans who served in America’s wars. Starting in 1919 after World War I, through World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam War, Persian Gulf War, and now the Global War on Terrorism, the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs recognizes the sacrifices and courage Minnesotans demonstrated to defend our country.

The 2022 Legislature passed and Governor Walz signed the first-ever Veterans Omnibus Bill that included funding for a service bonus payable to eligible Veterans who served from 9/11/01 to 8/30/21. The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) is honored to facilitate this program for eligible Veterans, currently serving service members, or Veterans beneficiaries.
