The Erath County Veterans’ Service Office provides a variety of functions for the benefit of our veterans, families, surviving spouses and the community. Our mission is to provide the latest information regarding benefits and ensure applications are filed through the Veterans Administration and other agencies timely and accurately. We provide free, timely and accurate advice and information to Erath County veterans and their families and coordinate with organizations within the Veterans' community for education, compensation and pension, medical care, insurance, VA loans, Texas Veterans’ benefits, and more. Some of those programs and services include but are not limited to:

• Disability Compensation Claims

Office hours are Monday through Thursday, 9-3PM. Walk ins are always welcome, however we often visit home-bound Veterans so we encourage you to call our office first so we can reserve personal time for you. We are located in the Courthouse Annex, Donald R Jones Justice Building on the square on the corner of Graham and College Streets, Room 107. If you need wheelchair assistance, park in the handicap parking and call us. We will meet you outside to assist you up the ramp.

We are not a part of the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs, more commonly known as the "VA". The County Veterans’ Service Officer is appointed by the County Commissioners Court to serve Erath County veterans and their families. We appreciate the opportunity and privilege to serve you.
