Veterans Services

As advocates for veterans, the Division's team of state accredited service officers know the extent, meaning and application of the laws passed by the U.S. Congress and the Florida Legislature, regarding veterans' benefits.

The team provides direct assistance when claims for benefits earned by military service, need to be completed and submitted to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Our team will apply specialized knowledge in the way best suited to the needs of each veteran and his or her beneficiaries.
