Serving Those Who Served Us

This nation can never repay the debt it owes the servicemen and women who risk their lives for the principles upon which this nation was founded.  We owe our veterans our honor, respect, and gratitude, but most importantly, we owe them care, benefits, and tools to care for themselves and their families.

Shelby County takes seriously its obligation to its veterans. Home to more than 50,000 veterans, the veterans Services Office of Shelby County Government is dedicated to ensuring that veterans and their families are connected to resources and benefits to which they are entitled and information that they may need. We are a single point of entry for veterans and their families to receive assistance. 

Services for veterans and their families:

  • Compensation and pension
  • Disability and increases
  • Upload evidence to support your claim
  • Claim status and appeals
  • Burial benefits
  • Service and medical record requests
  • Change of address
  • Add a dependent
  • Request forms
The office works closely with the Tennessee Department of Veterans Affairs, the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and both veterans' cemeteries in Shelby County.
