Veterans Service Office

Washington County Veteran Service Officers are available to assist veterans in seeking state and federal benefits. 

For the health and safety of staff and those we serve, appointments with Veterans Service Office staff will continue to be over telephone or video conference whenever possible. Although our department lobbies in Cottage Grove, Forest Lake, and Stillwater are open, there is limited capacity.

When required, in-person meetings are by appointment only.

To schedule an appointment, call your worker or 651-430-6895.

Examples of services offered in this office:

  • Comprehensive benefits counseling
  • Claims preparation and submission
  • Claims follow-up to ensure final decisions
  • Networking and advocacy with federal, state and local agencies
