State Veterans Services Organizations

You can file a claim with the Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA) online.  But you SHOULDN’T!  Instead, take advantage of the free services of your state and/or county Veterans Services Organization (VSO).  They are trained and certified to interview you and find all of what you and your family have earned through your service - even if you’ve served in peacetime and never left the states.  They file your claim for you, using the catch phrases the VA looks for to approve (or deny) your claim.

In addition, most VSOs will know of additional services available from your local governments and non-profits.  For instance, California offers home loan assistance that is 15 times that of the VA.  Plus, your children can go to CA state colleges for Free.

Find the contact information and website for your state VSO main office below.  The link to your state VSO will also contain information for county VSOs.
