In June 2018, a new Marion County Veteran Service Office (VSO) was officially introduced to the community. The office is a partnership among
Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency,
Oregon Department of Veterans' Affairs, and Marion County.
The veteran service officers are accredited VA representatives. They advocate for Marion County veterans, dependents, and survivors to ensure they received the earned benefits provided by federal and state law. This includes but is not limited to:
Filing disability claims (both service-connected and non service-connected)
Filing for pension
Obtaining military records
Applying for VA health care
Applying for VA education benefits
Applying for surviving spouse benefits
Come see us during the walk-in hours listed above for help filing a claim, or to talk about potential VA benefits. You may also connect with us at the phone number or email listed above.
