Veterans Affairs

COVID-19 Update to County Services:

3/17/2020 
NOTICE:  We are not taking in-person scheduled appointments. Our front door is not locked at this time, but our slider glass service window is closed.  We encourage clients to call, email, fax and/or use the USPS to contact us with questions and concerns.  We are still taking claims and asking the client to sent us the requested documents or leave them at our front counter or push them under the door to limit person-to-person contact. We will conduct a telephone interview to obtain more information from the client and to notify them if we require more documentation before sending them the form(s) to sign and return or having them stop-in to sign.  

Our VAMC shuttle van to/from the Ann Arbor facility is still in operation if there is a need and if we can find a volunteer driver willing to take the run. 

We will report to work, unless we are sick ourselves.  We are still serving our veterans and their dependents.
