Requesting Your Military Discharge
Military Report of Separation, DD Form 214
You or your next of kin cannot apply for any Veteran Benefits without a
certified copy of your
Report of Separation (DD Form 214). It is typically used for VA home
loans, educational benefits, employment, retirement, and funeral benefits, just
to name a few. Every veteran should have a copy of their DD-214 or
Certificate of Military Service in their own, personal records as a part of
their Estate Planning.
Please allow a minimum of two to three weeks for processing and delivery,
even on emergency requests.
