 Sarasota County Veterans' Services


Sarasota County Veteran Service Officers (VSOs) ensure that veterans and their families receive all federal and state benefits available to them. VSOs do this by providing effective, knowledgeable and dedicated representation to veterans and their families AT NO COST to them.

There are "financial planners" and "veterans counselors" who charge fees for this type of work. Using them rather than an accredited VSO can cost you thousands of dollars and you may still not receive the benefits you've earned.

Sarasota County VSOs are trained and accredited by the Florida Department of Veterans' Affairs and other national service organizations to represent claimants in the benefits process.

  • VSOs are extremely well versed in all applicable federal and state laws to provide veterans and claimants the best representation.

The Sarasota County Veterans' Services Office should be the first stop for veterans to receive a complete explanation of the benefits they have earned.

Call 941-861-VETS (8387) today to schedule your appointment with a Sarasota County VSO. This is a free service from start to finish.

  • We are not VA employees.
  • We work for Sarasota County, for veterans, their surviving spouses and eligible family members. It is our #1 priority to help you access the benefits you've earned!

No consultation fee, no fee for service, no percentage of your benefits received... FREE!

Feel free to email us anytime with your questions, comments, and/or concerns at VETERANS@SCGOV.NET!
