Welcome! (845) 638-5244
We are veterans helping veterans, service-members, and their families, in any way we can.
The Veterans Service Agency of Rockland was established in 1945 and continues to provide information and assistance to Rockland County, New York veterans.
As veterans we have earned benefits because of our military service. We have information for you on the GI Bill, educational benefits, medical benefits, post traumatic stress, and submitting VA claim forms. We will provide you with the most current information on all veteran-related topics. There is never a fee for our services.
We welcome your inquiries. If you have a question, ask us....rules and regulations change constantly so don't assume that something you heard even a few years ago, is still valid now.
- Our VA veterans' medical clinic in New City, New York provides ongoing medical services for more than 6,500 local veterans. This was the first-of-its-kind established and now there are more than 1,000 such VA medical clinics throughout the U.S. - making it much more convenient for the veteran to access VA medical benefits. To view their website, use this link: Rockland County, NY Veterans Clinic

- New Combat Veteran ID Cards are now available. If you are a combat veteran, you can get this card at the County Clerk's Office which is located at 1 South Main Street, Suite 100, New City, New York 10956. To apply for the Combat Veteran ID Card, or the F.A.V.O.R. card for all veterans, if you don't already have one, bring your DD214 to the County Clerk's Office. They'll take your photo and make up a card for you. You can contact the County Clerk's Office at (845) 638-5076 or call the Veterans Service Agency of Rockland County at 845-638-5244. This new Combat Veteran ID Card offers all of the same benefits as the F.A.V.O.R. (Find and Assist Veterans of Record) card, which includes almost 1000 discounts to Rockland's veterans, but this new CVID card has specific advantages. The CVID card is co-sponsored by the Rockland County Police Benevolent Association and will be recognized by our local law enforcement agencies. So if you ever get pulled over, along with your license, registration, and insurance card, show the police officer your Combat Vet ID card so he knows you're an in-country vet.
