The mission of the Herkimer County Veterans' Service Agency is to provide entitlement information and advocacy assistance to military personnel, military veterans, and to their dependents in matters relating to veterans' law. Our expert counseling staff prepares, presents and prosecutes claims ranging from but not limited to monthly compensation and pension income, educational benefits, health care, nursing home care, vocational rehabilitation, tax exemption, military discharge reviews and upgrades, home loan guarantees, and blind annuity.
