What are Special Veterans Benefits?
Special Veterans Benefits (SVB) are benefits funded by the Federal Government and are administered by the Social Security Administration. Under the SVB program, special benefits are paid to certain veterans of World War II who reside outside the United States.
SVB is authorized by Title VIII (Special Benefits for Certain World War II Veterans) of the Social Security Act.
SVB is not the same as Supplemental Security Income (SSI). It is a separate benefit program and is financed from the general funds of the United States Treasury.
