Navigating Government Benefits & Employment: A Guidebook for Veterans with Disabilities and Those Who Serve Them

This guidebook is a joint collaboration between Griffin-Hammis Associates, Inc., and the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University. It is intended to be a resource for veterans and family members as they navigate the complex interaction between government benefits and employment or self-employment. While there are numerous benefit programs available, this guidebook focuses on the ones veterans access most frequently, including programs administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Social Security Administration (SSA), Department of Defense (DoD), and State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) programs
