Veterans are not a burden - they are our Responsibility

Volusia County's Veterans Services Division assists all former and present members of the Armed Forces and their dependents in preparing claims for compensation, hospitalization, vocational training and other benefits and privileges to which they are entitled under federal and state laws and county regulations.

Through the efforts of the staff, more than $176 million is distributed to veterans and their dependents each year.

We encourage you to call our office to make an appointment to discuss your concerns. In addition to our office, you also may call the Veterans Administration toll-free at 800-827-1000.
