Claims Assistance

Claims Assistance

The Veterans Service Office provides assistance with any claim filed through it to the VA. Our office will help facilitate the beginning stages of your claim, in collecting the proper documents and guiding your application to the correct programs to fit your needs, as well as provide you with follow up information to track your benefits. We'd like to help you navigate towards the benefits you deserve, and see that you're not hindered by the process of applying.

It is important to have documentation and vital information available for your VA claims. The following is a simple checklist for gathering appropriate documents for your claim:

  • Birth certificates for dependents
  • Death certificates
  • Discharge papers (DD214)
  • Divorce decrees
  • Marriage certificates
  • Social Security documents

Benefits Assistance

The Veterans Services Office can help you file a benefit claim. You may also contact the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CDVA) regional field office to file a benefit claim. Many other Veterans Services Organizations can also provide assistance about how to file a benefit claim.
