Veteran's Service Office
The Hoke County Veteran's Service Office (VSO) is an agency of the Hoke County Government which is accredited by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the North Carolina Division of Veterans Affairs (NCDVA) and various veteran's organizations to act as the representative of veterans, dependents and widows in presenting claims to the VA, other federal, state, and county agencies.
These claims include disputes of decisions handed down by the VA as well as original claims for disability and compensation, application for medical and educational benefits, applications for scholarships for dependents, burial benefits claims for surviving spouses, and home loan mortgage guarantees.
Other actions are to help restore or upgrade military discharges, obtain lost records or documents, obtaining medical treatment and in some cases providing legal counsel in certain matters. On a limited basis the VSO helps veterans find or apply for employment. The VSO reads and / or writes letters for those with limited skills. Assistance is provided in enrolling in appropriate mental health and substance programs.
Please call to make an appointment prior to seeing the Veteran Service Officer during business hours. If you need to cancel your appointment please give a courtesy 24-hour notice.
