Veteran's Affairs

Posted on: September 22, 2022

Office Name Change

Cumberland County Veterans Affairs has changed its name to the Cumberland County Office of Veterans Affairs & Services to better reflect our role in serving and advocating for veterans. 

Our services have not changed. We continue to help veterans apply for the various benefits for which they are eligible. Our name change better reflects the services the Office of Veterans Affairs & Services provides. The office is not a federal or state department, and while we do not provide state and federal services, we are glad to help veterans apply and advocate on their behalf. Our new office email is veterans@cumberlandcountypa.gov

Our Mission

To provide high quality advice, assistance, counseling, education, outreach and advocacy to eligible veterans and their families for obtaining federal, state and county veterans' benefits and services in accordance with applicable laws, regulations, and policies.

What We Do

  1. Assist service members, veterans and families who apply for local, state and federal benefits.
  2. Advocate for veterans and help coordinate services to meet their individual needs, both long-term and immediate.
  3. Represent veterans, and their families to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. We provide support through the entire process, including representation in appealing a negative outcome to the Board of Veterans Appeals.
