Veterans Agent
December 31, 2014
Veterans' Services Department
Every town or city in the Commonwealth is required by Chapter 115 of the Massachusetts General Laws to have a Veterans' Agent.  

The Town of West Boylston has a part-time agent, who is available every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 9:00 a.m until 1:00 p.m. at the new Town Hall at 140 Worcester Street. The Veterans' Agent's office is on the second floor.  An elevator is available, if you have difficulty climbing stairs. No appointment is necessary.

Senior Center:  The Veterans' Agent is also available at the Senior Center on the last Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m.  Veterans or their eligible dependents should make an appointment through the Senior Center at 508-835-6916.  The Senior Center is located at the Town Offices at 127 Hartwell Street.

Veteran Homestead Mobile Medical Clinic:  second Friday of the month.  For more information, click here.

Worcester VA Clinic
605 Lincoln Street, Worcester
First Monday of the month:  A representative from the Disabled American Veterans is available to help veterans file for compensation and pension claims.

Every Monday and Thursday from 8:a.m. - 3:30 p.m.: A VA benefits counselor is available to answer any questions about Veterans Affairs (Federal) benefits.

No appointments are necessary for either of these sessions.


Responsibilities
The responsibilities of the Veterans' Agent include providing information, advice and assistance to veterans and their dependants to enable them to procure benefits to which they are or may be entitled.  These benefits include employment, vocational or other educational opportunities, hospitalization, medical care, burial and other veterans' benefits.

All veterans have the right to file for assistance through the Veterans' Agent, but you must qualify under Chapter 115 before any aid is granted.  The State Commissioner of Veterans' Services is the final authorizer for all monetary requests.

Our Veterans' Agent works in close coordination with the State Office of Veterans' Services and other Veterans' Agents in Worcester County.  Please contact us to request help in understanding your benefits, obtaining applications or completing forms.  We are pleased to answer any questions or set up an appointment if needed.
