Did you know…Pennsylvania has a Veterans Registry?

Veterans RegistryThe PA VETERANS REGISTRY is an online application that allows veterans, family members and people who work with veterans to connect with DMVA to request information related to the valuable state benefits, programs and services offered. By connecting with DMVA, registrants can also opt-in to receive ongoing communications such as the weekly DMVA DIGEST (view our most recent edition here), breaking news and other updates. The PA VETERANS REGISTRY is DMVA’s first step in a long-term strategy to achieve a higher level of communication with our veterans as well as our partners who support them. Please take a moment to register below.
