Office of Veterans' Benefits

Veterans Services

With deep appreciation, we recognize and engage our veterans and their families, advocate for assistance in their time of need, and connect them with the services they've earned.

Our department oversees the financial assistance program known as Massachusetts General Law Chapter 115. This includes the decoration of veterans' graves and carries out commemorative activities related to Acushnet veterans. Learn more about the rights and benefits of military personnel.
