The mission of our local Berks County Department of Veterans Affairs is to administer a comprehensive array of benefits programs and provide assistance services pertaining to claims to the veterans of Berks County and their dependent widows/widowers and orphans in the most expeditious and accountable manner we can. These benefits include those provided by federal, state, and local governments.
Claims pertaining to the following can be submitted to the Veterans Affairs: service-connected compensation, non-service-connected pension, burial allowances, vocational and rehabilitation training, insurance, tax exemptions, emergency assistance, paralyzed and blind veteran’s pension, specialized veteran’s license plates, flag holders and headstones. We may need to refer a claimant directly to the US Department of Veterans Affairs for assistance when required.
Berks County Department of Veterans Affairs is not a federal or state agency and therefore does not have direct access to all information that is managed by the US Department of Veterans Affairs or the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. We can assist you with your search for information with these departments at any time, but we can advocate on behalf of your claim only when we enter into a limited power of attorney with you.
