Veterans Service Center
The Milwaukee Regional Office administers a variety of services and benefits for Wisconsin's veterans and their dependents, including service-connected disability compensation. Such services include determining disability levels, ensuring proper payment, benefits counseling, determining entitlement to specially adapted housing, and managing fiduciary services. The Regional Office is further committed to providing extensive outreach for demobilizing veterans as well as homeless veterans.
Family Caregiver Program
On May 9, 2011, VA started accepting applications for a new Family Caregiver Program that provides support for families of seriously wounded Post-9/11 Veterans. Eligible primary Family Caregivers may receive a stipend, training, mental health services, and access to health insurance. More information is available on the Caregiver website.

Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment (VR&E)
VA's VR&E program helps Veterans with service-connected disabilities by offering them services and assistance to help them prepare for, find, and keep suitable employment.
VETSUCCESS is a great place to start!
VA is working with partners to maximize the success of Veterans in the labor market. That includes support of the Veterans Opportunity to Work (Vow) to Hire Heroes Act of 2011.
For Veterans with serious service-connected disabilities, VA also offers a program of services to improve their ability to live as independently as possible.
Pension Management Center
The Milwaukee VA Regional Office includes one of three Pension Management Centers (PMCs). The PMC serves those veterans and their dependents living in Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Tennessee, and Wisconsin. VA Pension is an income-based program intended to ensure that all war-time Veterans and their dependents can maintain a reasonable standard of living.
The Milwaukee VA Regional Office includes one of six Fiduciary Hubs. It administers Fiduciary Services for Veterans and their dependents living in Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin.
The Milwaukee Regional Office follows Veterans Benefits Administration guidance in all its decision making. Those rules are a matter of public record. You may view them in VBA's Web Automated Reference Material System (WARMS).
