VETERANS

George County is proud to be home to 1,800 military veterans. The County’s Veterans Services Office was established to assist military veterans in obtaining their benefits and advising them of their rights with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The most common requests include: funeral advice, file claims, widow benefits, children's benefits, overpayment waives or compromises, discharges, medical assistance, appeals, insurance, government issue homes, loans and assistance to ex-POWs. Last year the County’s office handled more than $8.6 million in benefits from Veteran's Administration.
