How to Find and Access Georgia Veteran Benefits
The Georgia Department of Veterans Services (GDVS) offers special benefits to the veterans of Georgia, their families, or their survivors. The department has numerous services and programs that help veterans, including disabled veterans, cope well with civilian life.
Despite having all these benefits, most veterans encounter challenges while accessing them. Some veterans are not even aware of all the benefits available to them. Georgia veteran's benefits application process is also lengthy. The veterans are required to fill in relevant application forms and also produce proof of eligibility.
This has prompted DoNotPay to create a line of products that will help veterans identify and apply their benefits easily and quickly. The products also help veterans locate nearby VA centers and acquire service records for their benefits.

How to Access Veterans Benefits on Your Own
Each benefit has its own application procedure. The GDVS requires veterans applying for the above benefits first to submit a copy of their discharge paperwork which contains the veterans:
- Full name
- Social Security Number
- Type of discharge
- Branch and dates of service
- Service dates
You can apply for most benefits using the following four main methods:
|By Phone||You can call GDVS toll-free hotline at 404-656-2300, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 04:30 p.m., to get help with your application. Making applications by phone is convenient but also has some downsides. One of the major problems with this method is the long customer service call wait time. This makes the whole process expensive, slow, and time-consuming.|
|By Email||Applying for VA benefits by email involves downloading and filling out the relevant VA form. The department requires the veteran or the person acting as their power of attorney to sign and date the form. To avoid your application being rejected or denied, you must ensure that all the details you have filled out in the form are accurate and you have also provided the right supporting documents.|
|In-Person||You can visit your local VA offices physically and make your application. Most offices are open for scheduled in-person services from Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 04:430 p.m. You can avoid visiting the offices during the afternoon hours when they are crowded. Some offices might also be closed during the lunch break, so you can also avoid making your application during the lunch hours.|
