The Department of Veterans Services is a state mandated service, which provides services to the veteran's, veteran's spouses and their dependents. Its authority is derived from chapter 115 of the General Laws of the Commonwealth.
The Veteran's Officer for the City of Everett is appointed by the Mayor. The Department is supervised by the Office of the Commissioner of Veterans Services and in part by the state for all funds expended
Assistance is also rendered in the matter of pension, financial need, filing claims with the Veterans affairs or Social Security, education benefits, home loans, hospitalization and medical care, as well as the time of death of a veteran.
The office requests that all veterans who serviced during a wartime period file a copy of their discharge and DD214 with the Veterans Officer.
Additionally, the office is open to any veteran or service personnel who wished to talk about any matter pertaining to his or her well being. Visitation will be made to those veterans or veteran spouses unable to visit the office.
