Originated in 1926, The Erie County Veterans Service Agency was the first of its kind in the State of New York. Due to the increased demand for such services, and accelerated by World War II, the Agency became a part of the County Government on January 1, 1945. Since that time, this office has provided service to many thousands of veterans and their dependents, residing in Erie County.

General information

MISSION To insure that every veteran in the county is registered in the VA System and is fully aware of all the benefits that they have earned. To make veterans an economic force in education, employment and business development. SERVICE OFFICER REPRESENTATIVES The Director and his staff are passionate, caring, and concerned representatives and, as such are able to present claims for further development, institute appeals from Veterans Administration decisions, and follow through to final disposition with representation in Washington. In this manner, the Office of Veterans Services offers a personalized service not available from other sources. Erie County Veteran Service Officers will help you navigate the Department of Veterans Affairs' bureaucracy, and our services are free. We will help with gathering the information necessary to support a claim, filing the claim, and tracking the claim through the VA system. We can also assist with filing appeals for denied claims. We strongly recommend that you make use of the services provided by County Veterans Service Officers. Our expertise can help you avoid the pitfalls and delays that missing paperwork or improperly filled out claim forms can cause. In addition to the normal benefits provided by law to survivors of deceased veterans, this is the only agency charged with and responsible for processing, at county expense, of the burial of indigent veterans and next-of-kin of veterans.
