Veterans Services

 

More than 14,000 veterans live in Iredell County. The County Veterans Service Office provides them with a local place to obtain advice on Veterans Administration benefits and assistance with filing and tracking those claims. Our office is here to help them and their spouses, widows and dependents weed through the seemingly unending and confusing maze of laws, regulations and rules governing veterans benefits.

We provide claim forms and help and advice on filing VA claims. We help obtain the military service and medical records and other supporting documents needed to support and defend the claim. We search these records for information to substantiate the claim and not only guide the claimant through the claims process but also the appeals process if they are denied. We research benefit laws, Codes of Federal Regulations, past decisions of the VA Board of Veterans Appeals, rulings made by the Court of Veterans Appeals, medical text, etc., anything that will help our claimants obtain the greatest benefit to which they are entitled.

Benefits for eligible individuals can include Monthly Payments, Medical Treatment, Government Insurance, VA Home Loan Guarantees, Educational Benefits for Veterans From North Carolina, Burial Payments and Grave Markers, and others. Eligibility requirements are different for each benefit ad veteran and dependency status must be verified in all situations. A certified copy of the veteran’s DD214, Member 4 copy, is necessary in most cases.

We can also help military retirees and dependents get ID cards renewed and lost cards reissued, order lost discharge papers and replacement medals, provide information regarding discharge upgrades, guide veterans to other resources and benefits as needed and much more.

Veterans and their families who have questions concerning benefits or need assistance with the VA in any way are welcome to contact either of our offices during the days and times shown. We will gladly assist you in any way we can.
