The Veteran Services office helps Veterans and their families gain access to the benefits they have earned, such as financial assistance and medical treatment. Veteran Claims Officers provide information, referrals, claims preparation and submission, and follow-up service to ensure Veterans, their dependents, and survivors receive the benefits to which they are entitled.

The Veteran Services Office can provide information and assistance with any claim to the USDVA. Home calls or visits to hospitals, nursing homes, and senior centers may be made to assist elderly persons or those with disabilities.
Claim services for Veterans may include compensation for service connected disabilities, information and application to receive treatment at a USDVA hospital or clinic, and/or information on educational benefits or home loans.
The California College Fee Waiver (CCFW) Program provides financial benefits to the dependents of service-connected disabled or deceased Veterans to attend California State Universities, University of California campuses, and California Community Colleges.
Veterans’ Benefits Verification
The Veterans’ Benefits Verification and Referral form (CW5) is used by County staff to verify the status of the benefits received, to refer applicants or recipients to the Veteran Services Offices and to obtain new veteran benefits if eligible.
