Our aim is to insure that all veterans and their dependents have access to any benefits to which
they may be eligible as the result of the veteran’s active duty military or naval service. There are benefits due to some reservists and national guardsmen, but this must be determined on an individual basis.
Some of the areas most frequently covered by our office are:
- Service-Connected Disability Compensation
- Nonservice-Connected Disability Pension
- Widows’Dependents’ Pension
- Montgomery G.I. Educational Bill
- Vocational Rehabilitation
- Home Loan Guaranty
- Request for military records
- Request for service medals
- Recording of DD214/Separation papers with the County Clerk’s Office
- New York State Alternative Property Tax Exemption
- New York State Medals for Certain Active Duty Service
- Discharge Upgrade
- Burial Benefits
We are open Monday through Friday except holidays. If you wish to see us please call first, the day you are coming in, to insure that a Service Officer will be available to assist you. If you have any questions about veterans matters you can contact us at the above phone number.
This Web site gives you an opportunity to send a free printed postcard to U.S. military personnel stationed overseas showing your support and appreciation for their service to the country.

Warning To Veterans - Forwarded by Kevin Secor, VSO Liaison, Office of the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
An organization called Veterans Affairs Services (VAS) is providing benefit and general information on VA and gathering personal information on veterans. This organization is not affiliated with VA in any way. http://www.vaservices.org/us/index.html
VAS may be gaining access to military personnel through their close resemblance to the VA name and seal. Our Legal Counsel has requested that we coordinate with DoD to inform military installations, particularly mobilization sites, of this group and their lack of affiliation or endorsement by VA to provide any services.
In addition, GC requests that if you have any examples of VAS acts that violate chapter 59 of Title 38 United States Code, such as VAS employees assisting veterans in the preparation and presentation of claims for benefits, please pass any additional information to Mr.Daugherty at the address below.
