            Legislative Operations


The Department of Veterans Affairs operates programs to benefit veterans 
and members of their families. Benefits include compensation payments 
for disabilities or death related to military service; pensions; 
education and rehabilitation; home loan guaranty; burial; and a medical 
care program incorporating nursing homes, clinics, and medical centers.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) was established as an executive 
department by the Department of Veterans Affairs Act (38 U.S.C. 201 
note). It. is comprised of three organizations that administer veterans 
programs: the Veterans Health Administration, the Veterans Benefits 
Administration, and the National Cemetery Administration. Each 
organization has field facilities and a central office component.


Cemeteries  The National Cemetery Administration (NCA) provides services 
to veterans, active duty personnel, and reservists and National Guard 
members with 20 years' qualifying service and their families by 
operating national cemeteries; furnishing headstones and markers for the 
unmarked graves of U.S. veterans worldwide, service members, and 
reservists and National Guard members with 20 years' qualifying service; 
awarding grants to aid States in establishing, improving, and expanding 
veterans cemeteries; and serving as the operations element for the 
Presidential Memorial Certificate Program.
Center for Minority Veterans  The Center for Minority Veterans was 
established under Public Law 103-446 (108 Stat. 4645) and is responsible 
for promoting the use of VA benefits, programs, and services by minority 
veterans and assessing the needs of minority group members. The work of 
the Center focuses on the unique and special needs of five distinct 
groups of veterans: African-Americans, Hispanics, Asian-Americans, 
Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans, which include American Indians, 
Native Hawaiians, and Alaskan Natives.
Center for Women Veterans  The Center for Women Veterans acts as the

[[Page 359]]
Secretary's primary adviser on women veterans issues and evaluates VA 
programs, policies, and practices to ensure they are responsive and 
accessible to eligible women veterans.
Health Services  The Veterans Health Administration, formerly the 
Veterans Health Services and Research Administration, provides hospital, 
nursing home, and domiciliary care, and outpatient medical and dental 
care to eligible veterans of military service in the Armed Forces. It 
conducts both individual medical and health-care delivery research 
projects and multihospital research programs, and it assists in the 
education of physicians and dentists and with training of many other 
health care professionals through affiliations with educational 
institutions and organizations.
Veterans Benefits  The Veterans Benefits Administration provides 
information, advice, and assistance to veterans, their dependents, 
beneficiaries, representatives, and others applying for VA benefits. It 
also cooperates with the Department of Labor and other Federal, State, 
and local agencies in developing employment opportunities for veterans 
and referral for assistance in resolving socioeconomic, housing, and 
other related problems.
    The Compensation and Pension Service is responsible for claims for 
disability compensation and pension, specially adapted housing, accrued 
benefits, adjusted compensation in death cases, and reimbursement for 
headstone or marker; allowances for automobiles and special adaptive 
equipment; special clothing allowances; emergency officers' retirement 
pay; survivors' claims for death compensation, dependency and indemnity 
compensation, death pension, and burial and plot allowance claims; 
forfeiture determinations; and a benefits protection program for minors 
and incompetent adult beneficiaries.
    The Education Service is responsible for the Montgomery GI Bill, 
assistance programs for dependents, post-Vietnam era veterans, and other 
pilot programs, school approvals, compliance surveys, and work study 
    Life insurance operations for the benefit of service members, 
veterans, and their beneficiaries are available through the regional 
office and insurance center (phone, 800-669-8477) in Philadelphia, PA, 
which provides the full range of functional activities necessary for a 
national life insurance program. Activities include the complete 
maintenance of individual accounts, underwriting functions, life and 
death insurance claims awards, and any other insurance-related 
transactions. The agency also administers the Veterans Mortgage Life 
Insurance Program for those disabled veterans who receive a VA grant for 
specially adapted housing and supervises the Servicemembers' Group Life 
Insurance Program and the Veterans Group Life Insurance Program.
    Loan guaranty operations include appraising properties to establish 
their values; approving grants for specially adapted housing; 
supervising the construction of new residential properties; establishing 
the eligibility of veterans for the program; evaluating the ability of a 
veteran to repay a loan and the credit risk; making direct loans to 
Native American veterans to acquire a home on trust land; servicing and 
liquidating defaulted loans; and disposing of real estate acquired as 
the consequence of defaulted loans.
    The Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Service is responsible 
for outreach, motivation, evaluation, counseling, training, employment, 
and other rehabilitation services to disabled veterans; evaluation, 
counseling, and miscellaneous services to veterans and service persons 
and other VA education programs; evaluation, counseling, education, and 
miscellaneous services to sons, daughters, and spouses of totally and 
permanently disabled veterans and to surviving orphans, widows, or 
widowers of certain deceased veterans, including rehabilitation services 
to certain handicapped dependents; affirmative action activities; and 
vocational training and rehabilitation to children with spina bifida who 
are children of Vietnam veterans.
Veterans' Appeals  The Board of Veterans' Appeals (BVA) is responsible

[[Page 360]]
for entering the final appellate decisions in claims of entitlement to 
veterans' benefits and for deciding matters concerning fees charged by 
attorneys and agents for representation of veterans before VA and 
requests for revision of prior BVA decisions on the basis of clear and 
unmistakable error. Final Board decisions are appealable to the U.S. 
Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
Field Facilities  The Department's operations are handled through the 
following field facilities:
    --cemeteries, the final resting places for burial of the remains of 
veterans, active duty personnel, and reservists and National Guard 
members with 20 years' qualifying service; their spouses; and certain 
eligible dependents;
    --domiciliaries, providing the least intensive level of inpatient 
medical care including necessary ambulatory medical treatment, 
rehabilitation, and support services in a structured environment to 
veterans who are unable because of their disabilities to provide 
adequately for themselves in the community;
    --medical centers, providing eligible beneficiaries with medical and 
other health care services equivalent to those provided by private-
sector institutions, augmented in many instances by services to meet the 
special requirements of veterans;
    --outpatient clinics to provide eligible beneficiaries with 
ambulatory care; and
    --regional offices to grant benefits and services provided by law 
for veterans, their dependents, and beneficiaries within an assigned 
territory; furnish information regarding VA benefits and services; 
adjudicate claims and making awards for disability compensation and 
pension; supervise payment of VA benefits to incompetent beneficiaries; 
provide vocational rehabilitation and employment training; administer 
educational benefits; guarantee loans for purchase, construction, or 
alteration of homes; process grants for specially adapted housing; 
process death claims; and assist veterans in exercising rights to 
benefits and services.
