The Shasta County Veteran Service Office is the first stop for assisting Veterans across Shasta County.

Our counselors work extremely hard with assistance offered in filing for compensation (service-related injury or disease), re-open compensation claim for increase or reevaluation, and non-service connected pension (war era veterans only).
We assist in survivor benefits, burial benefits, ordering and certification of DD-214, vocational rehabilitation (serviced connected), College Fee Waiver (service connected), clothing allowance, special housing grant or auto grant (service connected), certification of DMV driver’s license application forms, request for military records and decorations, discharge upgrade and correction of military records, disability life insurance and waiver of premiums, payment of proceeds of VA life insurance, and assist veterans and their survivors for placement in long-term care facility (Aid and Attendance).
Our department services over 8,500 active clients annually, some of which are destitute and need assistance with transportation to get to work, medical appointments, school, and many other much needed services.
