About the Tehama County Veterans Service Office:
It is an office established by the Tehama County Board of Supervisors to assist in obtaining benefits from federal and state agencies administering programs for Veterans and their dependents. Our Veteran Service Officer and Veteran Service Representatives are trained and accredited to assist local veterans with obtaining VA benefits for which they might be eligible. They are Tehama County employees, not VA employees. Our office can assist veterans and their family members with determining eligibility and filing claims for monthly VA compensation, pension, educational benefits, vocational rehab, VA health insurance and many other benefits.
Please call the Tehama County Veterans Service Office at 530-529-3664 with questions or to make an appointment.
