Financial Assistance for Veterans and Their Dependents
The Veterans Service Commission stands ready to assist the households of veterans who have honorably protected and preserved our way of life during their time of need.
According to state law, eligible individuals must have:
- Served in a branch of the U.S. military on active duty for purposes other than training and received an honorable discharge or separation. Individuals may also be a spouse or widow(er) of an honorably discharged veteran.
- Proof of residency within Summit County for at least three months prior to application for benefits.
- Proof of a definite financial need. The process to determine such eligibility consists of the verification of all income and assets in addition to a listing of all current household expenditures. The level of financial need cannot be determined until all information has been evaluated.
