Who we are:
Mercer County Veterans Affairs was created to assist Veterans and their families in the pursuit of county, state and federal benefits. Our primary focus is ensuring that Veterans receive all entitlements they have earned by serving their country.
Our office can assist with: disability compensation claims, pension claims, real estate tax exemption for 100% permanently and totally disabled Veterans, emergency financial assistance, applications for VA home loan certificate of eligibility, applications for VA healthcare, PTSD counseling, recording or requesting military discharge papers, death gratuity benefits and more.
The Veterans Affairs office is open to the public. Please call the office prior to any visit. Calling to schedule an appointment is REQUIRED. Appointments are necessary to ensure that we have allotted enough time to prepare and assist veterans and their families. Anyone who visits the office without an appointment may have to wait for a staff member to be available to assist them if there is a previously scheduled appointment.

About Veterans Court:
Veterans Treatment Courts are an alternative to incarceration and other types of sanctions. Veterans Treatment Courts empower Veterans enabling them to obtain treatment, take accountability for their actions, receive treatment if necessary, and restore structure to their lives while resolving their criminal charges. These programs provide the necessary support that is required; however, it still requires the Veteran to follow a strict regimen, reminiscent of their prior military experience.
Veterans interested in enrolling in the Veterans Treatment Court Program must consult with their attorney, then complete and forward an application to the Veterans Court coordinator so an intake can be scheduled.
