Veterans Services

We are grateful for the service of our veterans and their families in the defense of our sacred freedom and liberty. 

About Us

Established in 1946 by the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors, Veterans Services is responsible for assisting veterans and qualified dependents with Veterans Administration (VA) benefit entitlement determinations, claim development, and filing claims to the VA.  We also act as advocates and provide case management services for the veterans of Sacramento County.

Benefits are primarily from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA); however, we also assist in obtaining earned veterans' benefits from the State of California and local government entities.

Veterans Services administers the CALVET College Fee Waiver Program, which waives "mandatory system wide" tuition and fees for eligible dependents while attending either a California community college, a campus of the California State University (Cal State) system, or a campus of the University of California (UC) system.

  • Service-Connected Disability Compensation Benefits
