Veteran Benefits

At Magellan Federal, we are honored to have nearly half of our workforce comprised of men and woman who have served in the U.S. Military. Too often veterans are not aware of the government benefits they have earned or require assistance in attaining those benefits available to them. If you are a Magellan Federal employee and are of veteran status, you can use the services offered by Magellan Federal’s Military Benefits Specialists—individuals who have been recognized as leading experts in their field.
