Marin County Veterans Services
The Marin County Veterans Service Office helps veterans, their spouses and children obtain all types of veterans benefits. To start the process, schedule an appointment by telephone.
Wartime veterans who have no service connected disabilities but who are unable to work may be eligible for a pension.
All veterans may be eligible for free hospital care at any VA medical facility, a guaranteed loan for the purchase of a home, and veteran's preference in employment. Drug and alcohol treatment programs are available.
Veterans honorably discharged within the last ten years may be eligible for payment while attending school.
Children of veterans who have a service-connected disability may be able to attend a State of California college or university without payment of tuition.
Spouses and children of deceased veterans whose death was service connected are eligible for monthly payment, tax exemption and a college education. Spouses and children of deceased wartime veterans, who have a very limited income, may be eligible for death pension. Life insurance and a burial allowance are payable in some cases.
There are no time limits for filing most claims.
Many veterans are unaware of the services and benefits to which they are entitled.
Our goal is is to make sure Marin County veterans are made aware of their entitlements and receive assistance in obtaining services and benefits.
The Marin County Law Library serves the public
by providing access to legal information sources through a variety of media, research assistance, and technologies needed to give practical expression to the law, while maintaining a flexible and supportive presence that fosters the ends of community service and social justice.
