The office hours of the Veterans' Services Officer are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm or by appointment. (617-993-2720)
In 1946, the Massachusetts legislature created the Office of Veterans' Services and formalized Chapter 115 of the General Laws. The mission of the Department of Veterans' Services is to advocate on behalf of all Veterans, and to provide quality service and benefits to those Veterans and their dependents in need of emergency financial and/or medical assistance. The Town of Belmont, through the Board of Selectmen's appointment of the Veterans' Services Agent, continues to demonstrate its concern and compassion for these men and women who have served our Country with honor.
The Veterans Services Agent is normally the first individual a Veteran initially contacts for advice and assistance. Being a Veteran does not mean benefits are automatic. The eligibility to receive entitlements from the Department of Veterans' Services and Veterans' Affairs must be determined and proven.
The Veterans Services Agent is committed to serving all eligible veterans and/or their families. Please don't hesitate to call if you need assistance.
