What is a county veterans affairs office?
Michigan Public Act 192 of 1953 created county department of veterans' affairs offices. Currently there are veteran service officers in all 83 counties in Michigan. These offices assist veterans with disability compensation, burial benefits, education benefits, emergency financial relief, VA medical appointments, transportation to and from VA medical facilities, VA home loan questions, replacement of DD-214 forms, and more.
Where can I visit one?
Most offices require an appointment with a benefits counselor. To find an office nearest you or to schedule an appointment see the list below.
What do I need to bring to my appointment?
When you call to schedule your appointment ask what you should bring. If you have your discharge papers (DD-214) bring them with you to your appointment. If you do not have them, a benefits counselor will be able to request a copy but it may delay your application for assistance.
