DVA - Contact & About

The Colorado Division of Veterans Affairs (DVA) is a state agency mandated by state statute. We are one of the four major operational divisions of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. We offer advocacy to Colorado Veterans, family members and survivors in securing benefits they may be entitled to through their military service by providing the highest level of customer care and service with our specially trained service officers.

We assist throughout the claims process with the Veterans Administration (VA) for state and federal benefits. We are not the Federal VA but rather the State Department working directly with and for Veterans and eligible dependents.

DVA serves as a central source of information on veterans benefits, rights and issues. We accomplish this by directing, training and assisting the county veterans service officers (CVSO) who comprise the local veterans assistance agencies in each of Colorado's Counties. The CVSOs are there to assist you with your claim. We strongly recommend regular contact with your CVSO throughout the claims process.

We recommend when you have questions you make an appointment with your CVSO who will provide you with answers and any needed assistance. Further, CVA assists claimants in their appeals to decisions they believe to be erroneous by serving as their advocate and attorney-in-fact to obtain federal and/or state veterans benefits before the Board of Veteran Affairs.
