Veteran Service Officers

Veteran center meeting.

Veteran Service Officers (VSO) are veterans who stand ready to help with veteran-related needs. Veterans Service Offices have all the forms and other information a veteran may need to obtain service from the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as the forms for requesting State veterans' benefits. The Service Officers will assist in finding the information and resources needed to solve service-related problems.

Veteran Service Officers help veterans navigate the many federal, state, and local resources and benefits available to them. Whether it's a specific question or the need to identify programs and benefits for which a veteran may be eligible, Veteran Service Officers stand by to help. They are liaisons for all veteran issues.

VSO's are trained and accredited by the US Department of Veterans Affairs to provide assistance to veterans, their dependents, and survivors. This includes not only applying for federal and state benefits but also providing resources related to the following:

  • Compensation and Pension
  • Health Care
  • Education & Training
  • Employment
  • Burial & Survivor
  • Housing
  • Transportation
  • Military Records

Local Veteran Service Officers can be found in offices specific to each state.
