Veterans Service Offices
The Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs (ADVA) has veterans service offices located in 60 counties throughout the State of Alabama. The primary function of the ADVA service offices is to assist veterans, their dependents, and survivors in the application and processing of claims for benefits and entitlements available from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the benefits provided for veterans by law from the State of Alabama earned by honorable service in the armed forces of the United States.
Services include the processing of compensation and pension applications; appeal VA decisions; file for survivors death benefits; apply for aid and attendance and housebound benefits; certification of claim documents; request for military service records; upgrade military discharges; apply for special veteran license plates.
ADVA veterans service officers are accredited to perform claims actions by nationally chartered veterans service organizations to include the American Legion, American Ex-Prisoners of War, Fleet Reserve Association, and Blinded Veterans Association.
