Veterans Services

Trying to find out if you are eligible for the many veterans' benefits programs, and then applying for them can be overwhelming.

Olmsted County can help. Our Veterans Services Officers can give you the latest benefits updates, help you apply for Federal and State benefits and provide you with referrals to other veterans related programs.

Call us 

If possible, have the following information ready.

  • Veterans Name and Date of Birth & Social Security Number
  • Discharge information (DD214)

8 AM - 5 PM
Monday - Friday

Gather your information 

To help us process your request as quickly as possible, we need:

  • Copy of DD214
  • Proof of residency (MN driver's license / ID card, voter registration card, rent receipt, utility bill)
  • Verification of income (last 3 pay stubs, other documents from social security administration, veterans administration or a tax return)
  • Two of the most recent bank statements (all pages)

Depending upon what kind of benefits you need, we might need other information. Download the checklist for a list of other documents you might need to bring.
