The Offices of Veterans' Services is a state/local program offering financial assistance – including medical benefits - for needy veterans and their dependants.
Although not directly affiliated with the federal program of Veterans Administration, veterans are provided with assistance in applying for the many programs offered by the VA.
Veterans who apply for benefits are either (1) unemployed and employable or (2) unemployed and unemployable.
• For those who are employable, this office works closely with the local Office of Employment ensuring that the veteran is assisted in resuming employment as soon as possible.
• For those that are unemployable, we assist with the application process with the more permanent types of assistance such as Social Security Disability Income and or VA Non-service connected pension. .
In addition to the Employment and Social Security Offices, we work very closely with other Social Services agencies such as Massachusetts Rehabilitation, Tri-Valley Elder Services, Visiting Nurses Association, Transitional assistance, Milford Senior Center as well as Homeless shelters.
