Free Veteran Claims Work  The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (Federal VA) benefit system actually is a legal system. In order to qualify for benefits, veterans must file a claim against the United States proving they are eligible for these benefits through the submission of legal, military and medical evidence. ODVA employs federally accredited and state certified Veteran Service Officers (VSOs) who are subject matter experts in Federal VA law (Chapter 38 United States Code and Chapter 38 Code of Federal Regulations) and are allowed to practice by taking Power of Attorney for veterans seeking benefits. These VSOs represent veterans, their dependents and survivors before the Federal VA in their claims and appeals.

With its County Veteran Service Officer and National Service Officer partners, ODVA provides claims and counseling advocacy and representation to Oregon’s more than 320,000 veterans.  Besides claims work, VSO’s regularly help veterans and their families learn about other benefits that they may be eligible for. VSO’s are knowledgeable about the many resources available within the state and can usually assist in finding help and solutions to issues that you may be facing.
