Should I seek the assistance of an accredited Veterans Service Officer (VSO) and why?
Yes. Accredited VSOs are required to pass an examination from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) demonstrating knowledge of the wide array of veteran benefits. Additionally, they are required to take annual continuing education training to maintain their accreditation and pass an examination very 5 years for reaccreditation. Additionally, VSOs are knowledgeable of State and County benefits. Their services are free and they do not make a profit from other activities in advising veterans. Your Cumberland County Director of Veterans Affairs and Assistant are accredited VSOs.
