Welcome to Vanderburgh County Veterans Services!  Our office provides Veterans assistance with the filing of claims for veterans' benefits.  We assist veterans, their spouses, and their dependents with questions about benefits and give information pertaining to eligibility requirements.  We assist with State and Federal VA benefits.

County Veterans Services Officers:
Ninety-one counties in the state employ a County Veterans Service Officer (CVSO).  These CVSO's are veterans who stand ready to help you with your veteran-related needs.  The County Veterans Service Offices have all the forms and other information you may need to obtain service from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or the State of Indiana.  Ther Service Officers will assist you in finding the information and resources you need to solve your service related problems.  They are your liaison for all veteran issues.

*To avoid complications in the claims process visit with us prior to filing your claim
*Make sure you have a Power of Attorney (POA), ensuring you have the ability to track your claim through the process
