Veterans may apply for benefits on-line from overseas using their home computer. The Veterans Online Application (VONAPP) requires that you have one of four specific browsers installed on your computer and a minimum capability of 128-bit encryption. If you do not currently have the correct browser, you can download one for free from the Veterans Benefits website. The Veterans Benefits website will tell you if you need to download encryption software, and they will provide a free download link if this is the case. Please note that the encryption may not work in all countries. Where the (VONAPP) is not available, the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate can be of assistance.
If you are resident in Turkmenistan and are entitled to U.S. federal benefits, such as Social Security or Veterans benefits, you may receive these benefits in Turkmenistan by picking up your checks personally. Please contact us to make the proper arrangements.
We can also assist you in contacting the Social Security Administration, the Department of Veterans Affairs and other offices. Please contact us to set up an appointment.
