*****The VA has sent out the annual “Summary of Benefits” letter, dated June 24, 2015. This letter shows the veteran’s percent disability and monthly benefit. This is an important document used by many different organizations such as public housing and MassHealth to name two. It is also used by your Assessors for the Tax Abatement. Veterans who are 100% disabled and own their home are required to provide this letter annually.  Feel free to bring your copy in and we will make a photocopy to keep on file incase something happens to your original.*****




THE BURLINGTON OFFICE OF VETERANS SERVICES
advises clients as to the availability of state and federal services and benefits to which they may be entitled.  This office is the gateway for Massachusetts Department of Veterans Services' and Federal Veterans Affairs' benefits in order to provide financial assistance to all needy, eligible veterans, surviving spouses and their dependents.  

This office also coordinates public events such as Memorial Day and Veterans Day programs.  On Memorial Day this office and volunteers place more than 3000 flags on the graves of veterans interred in a Town of Burlington cemetery.   

Please call the office if you would like to make an appointment, if you would like us to assist in pointing you in the direction as to the benefits or aid you are seeking, or if you have any questions as to your eligibility for benefits from any source. We look forward to hearing from veterans and families of veterans seeking veterans' benefits or advice on many issues to assist in enhancing the quality of their life.
