Veterans Service Agency

Our Mission:

To assist veterans and their families in identifying and applying for benefits they are entitled to as a result of their military service.

Why use a Veteran Service Officer?

Wayne County Veterans Service Agency has one director, and one Veteran Service Officer and their services are FREE.  

Veteran Service Officers will help you navigate the Department of Veterans Affairs benefits process: we will assist with gathering necessary information, filing, and tracking you claim for benefits through the VA system.
