The Annual Benefits Report is a summary of benefits provided by VA to Veterans and their dependents.
The fiscal year 2013 Annual Benefits Report has undergone a significant redesign and reorganization. Each major benefits program has its own section viewable and printable as a separate PDF document. The introduction and appendix section now contain the program overviews, the glossary, and all state-by-state data. The entire report is also available as a single PDF document at the bottom of the table below.
The report is presented as “facing pages,” which allows the comparison of like data between pages; it can also be viewed as a single-page full screen in the View > Page display settings in the PDF software or by clicking any bookmark on the left.
When opening the PDF in the Acrobat Reader software, bookmarks are visible to the left. These bookmarks allow quick access to major sections of the document. The table of contents contains clickable links to each sub-section or table in the document.

Our nation's Veterans, their families and survivors deserve the best in benefits and health care. VBA's annual Performance and Accountability Reports outline our performance targets and detail our results by program for the most recent fiscal year.
This annual report card provides Veterans and the American people with information on how well VBA has done in processing claims, the impact of the benefits VBA provides, and the strategy we're following to achieve and maintain excellence.
