The County Veterans Service Office is an office established by the Butte County Board of Supervisors to assist veterans, their dependents and survivors, and the general public in obtaining benefits from federal, state, and local agencies administering programs for veterans.
We are a county agency and NOT the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
We provide advocacy to the veteran community regarding entitlement rights to federal, state and local benefit programs.
**Filing your claim through the Butte County Veterans Service Office will greatly improve your chances for a successful, well-documented, claim to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. County Veteran Service Officers and Representatives are certified, skilled professionals trained in developing veterans' claims for benefits by reviewing and applying relevant legislation, current law, protocols and important medical evidence.
