Mission Statement

To promote the health, safety, and welfare of local veterans and their dependents/survivors by

advocating on their behalf to the Department of Veterans Affairs and other service organizations

in order to provide them with benefits and services to which they may be entitled.

Our Veterans Service Representatives (VSR's) are accredited Veterans Claims Representatives. VSR's are not employees of the federal government, they are county employees ready to help you become connected with your VA benefits. They will assist you in securing the maximum benefits. If you are unsure of where to find help, need aid to get started, or are just unsure of your entitled benefits, you can obtain assistance by calling the County of San Luis Obispo, Veterans Services Office. Our staff can help you understand and apply for benefits and entitlements and will advocate and case-manage you throughout the claim process. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible, as many benefits are retroactive to the date of application. We can help you obtain copies of your discharge papers if you do not have them.

To schedule an appointment, please call (805) 781-5766. In addition to our main office in San Luis Obispo, we offer appointments in Arroyo Grande and Paso Robles. Call for details.
