VETERANS AND ACTIVE DUTY MEMBERS BE SAFE

The Marion County Veterans Affairs Office assists former members of the United States Armed Forces and their families in filing a claim for benefits for which they may be entitled.  These claims include compensation  & pension benefits, VA healthcare enrollment, VA home loans, Life and Mortgage insurance, and burial benefits.  We also network with agencies throughout the community to aid the veteran/widow in obtaining additional assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions:
 
What types of disability payments are avaliable?

There is service-connected compensation which is based on injury, illness or disability that incurred or aggravated while on active duty. Also there is non-service connected pension, which is based on wartime service, character of discharge, total disability/or age 65 and older, and amount of countable annual household income.

Is medical assistance available?

Possibly.  It depends on family income and net worth, length of active duty service and/or if condition is rated service-connected by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

How do I know if I'm eligible for VA benefits?

Eligibility for benefits varies but is mainly based on active duty service (other than for training only) length and/or period of service, character of discharge, degree of disability, and countable annual household income.
