The Fulton County Veterans Service Agency renders a wide variety of services to an estimated 7,000 veterans discharged under honorable conditions and their families throughout Fulton and Hamilton Counties.

Agency Services

The Fulton County Veterans Service Agency has a professionally trained and accredited service officer who is available to assist Veterans and their families with processing their claims with the VA. Accredited Service Officers are recognized under federal law by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide legal representation for individuals in matters relating to VA law.

That Asserted Representation establishes a “client-attorney relationship” with the same implied obligations as any attorney. By virtue of accreditation the Service Officer has access to a nationwide network of Accredited Representatives who are able to provide expanded assistance, even before the Board of Veterans’ Appeals in Washington, D.C.

Professional Accredited Representation:

We are committed to providing the highest level of service within the limits of available resources. To maintain that commitment, we enhance our expertise through continuous training and retraining. Skilled counseling and claims development is fully realized only by the commitment to the continuing education of our staff.

Our staff is constantly training and improving their skills in order to maintain knowledge of the current laws and regulations used to apply for Veterans benefits. If we can not readily answer your questions, we will follow up to find you the answers you seek.
