Veteran Affairs

The Chickasaw County Veterans’ Service Office provides support to veterans, widows of veterans, children of deceased or disabled veterans and parents who lost a son or daughter in military service.

We help these individuals apply for various federal and state benefits. We work WITH the federal Veterans Affairs, Iowa Department of Veteran Affairs and other veteran organizations to inform veterans about the benefits for which they are eligible.

We do NOT work for the Veterans Administration or the State of Iowa and have no direct influence on the granting of benefits.

Our Services

  • Military Service Connection Disability Compensation
  • Military Service Pension Benefits
  • Survivor Benefits
  • Military records research and replacements
  • Admission to the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown Iowa
  • Grave Markers and Flag holders
  • Certificate of Eligibility for VA Home Loan

  • Military Retirement Services and information
