VFW SERVICE DIVISION

The Veterans of Foreign Wars service division is a full-service non-profit organization that assists veterans, their family members, and survivors. The service division is an advocate for veterans and their families, and aggressively pursues all federal and state benefits and entitlements on their behalf.

The Veterans Service Offices are staffed with accredited Service Officers to assist veterans and family members in accessing benefits to which they may be entitled; including.

  • VA Disability Compensation
  • VA Pension or Widows Pension
  • Aid & Attendance
  • Health Care Benefits
  • Other Federal, State or County Benefits

Using a case management approach, our staff attend to the needs of the individual and their families by providing counseling and referral services in a holistic fashion. This includes representing veterans in cases adjudicated with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in Seattle.
