Iowa Attorney General

For Veterans and Service Members

Our office is dedicated to supporting Iowa’s veterans, military service members, and their families, by enforcing certain state and federal laws that protect them. If you serve or have served in our nation's military, thank you.

Veterans and service members, including active duty members of the National Guard or Reserves, enjoy certain special rights and benefits under the law. These safeguards help avoid credit and foreclosure problems, protect against employment and housing discrimination, and provide additional health care, disability and education benefits.

Unfortunately, service members and veterans should also be aware of scammers and shady business people who may try to target them. The scams include people trying to take advantage of their benefits, bogus or sound-alike veterans charities, and scams that try to convince those targeted to reveal their personal or financial information.

We hope this information, divided into special web pages for veterans and service members, is especially helpful to Iowans who now serve or have served in our military.

If you are a veteran or service member who is a resident of Iowa and you need assistance with a consumer issue, file a complaint or contact our contact our Consumer Protection Division. Be sure to inform us of your service.
