Transition and Economic Development


The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) wants you to be successful when you transition from military to civilian life. The Office of Transition and Economic Development (TED) supports VA’s mission by helping you and your family navigate VA benefits and services, use partner resources, and get the support you need. We are here to help you achieve and sustain your career goals, find economic success, and maintain your physical and mental well-being throughout your military life cycle.

From when you first join the military to when you start your post-military life, TED is here to help you achieve success anytime, anywhere.
