Veterans Services

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


Established in 1946 by the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors, Veterans Services is responsible for providing benefit entitlement determinations, claim development, claim filing, advocacy, and case management services to the veterans population of Sacramento County.

This vital segment of our population includes an ever increasing aging veterans population composed of WWII & Korean veterans and their survivors, Vietnam veterans, Enduring Freedom & Iraqi veterans, peacetime veterans, and another viable segment of the veterans' population, homeless veterans. Available benefits are primarily from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), but we also assist in obtaining earned veterans' benefits from the State of California and local government entities.

Veterans Services is also responsible for administering the College Fee Waiver Program for Veterans' Dependents. All college fee waivers are processed in five business days.  This program is afforded to spouses, unmarried surviving spouses, and children of service-connected disabled or service related deceased veterans. Eligible dependents are not required to pay "mandatory system wide" tuition and fees 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. This program not only provides eligible dependents with the incentive, but also the opportunity to pursue their goals.
