Cass County Veterans Services

The Veteran Services Division is part of the Health, Human, and Veteran Services Department. Our goal is to provide unparalleled customer service to the veterans of Cass County, with an emphasis on individual needs and personalized benefits counseling. Our customers have paid in advance for these services and deserve only the best. An individual’s right to privacy and confidentiality is always respected. We are happy to assist veterans or their dependents on a walk-in or by appointment basis and we also offer service in several satellite locations throughout the county.
