New England Region Service Officers

The Chapter has an extremely close working relationship with its area Service Officers and stays in regular communication with them regarding member and facility needs. This past year our area Service Officers total contacts were 6.594 of which 82% were members/eligible. Our Services Officers were instrumental in assisting these veterans receiving $3,976,114 in benefits for Massachusetts & Rhode Island and $4,397,711 in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.

Service office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Service Officers are located within the VA facilities and regularly visit our members and other patients while in the hospital. They also periodically visit other VA SCI Clinics throughout New England. It is through these visits and referrals from the Chapter that our members receive assistance in applying for benefits, entitlements and filing claims.
