Mission Statement

The mission of the Lynnfield Veterans’ Services Department is to advocate on behalf of all veterans, and to provide them with quality support services. The Director of Veterans Services is available to assist and guide all qualifying veterans who seek and apply for both state and Federal benefits. State benefits include financial and medical assistance, and are provided under M.G.L. Ch. 115. These benefit costs are reimbursed to the town of Lynnfield by the state’s Department of Veterans Services at the rate of 75%. Federal benefits are provided by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. The dependents of deceased veterans are also provided with the same benefits. It is the Veterans' Service Officer to whom the unemployed, the indigent, the disabled, the ill, or veterans otherwise in need, first apply for assistance.
