Every county in Oregon has a Veteran Services Office with federally accredited and state-certified veteran service officers. These VSOs provide benefits counseling, represent and advocate for veterans, their dependents and survivors in obtaining benefits to which they are entitled.
VSOs are trained and experienced in navigating the federal VA process to ensure claims are submitted accurately and efficiently, for no fee.
