Due to COVID-19 and the Shelter in Place guidelines, the Santa Clara County Office of Veterans Services is currently closed to the public.

The Veterans Service Representatives are still assisting Santa Clara County Veterans and dependents with processing applications to the State and Federal VA for benefits, but we are conducting these meetings without direct in-person contact using alternative methods via phone, mail, and email options.

If you need assistance or have any questions, please call 408-918-4980 and leave a message. The Veterans Service Representatives are working remotely and will respond accordingly to assist with these processes. We are working on establishing technologies in order to better assist during this situation. Please be patient with us.

Please remember that the Santa Clara County Office of Veterans Service is not the Federal or State VA. The Federal and State VA is still open and operating, although following COVID-19 guidelines for safety.

For questions regarding VA Healthcare, please contact the Veterans Health Administration by contacting your primary care provider through one of the VA Medical Centers or Community Based Outpatient Clinics.

For questions regarding VA Benefits through the Veterans Benefits Administration, such as Service Connected Disability claims and VA Pension questions or VA Education questions, please go to or call 1-800-827-1000.

For questions regarding State of California Veterans benefits, go to or call 800-952-5626.

Thank you for your service!
