Lackawanna County Veterans Affairs Office Services

The Veterans Affairs Office is open from Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM and is located in The Scranton Electric Building, 507 Linden Street
The Lackawanna County Veterans Affairs Office is on its way to another record-setting year in terms of helping the County’s 38,000 veterans secure the federal and state benefits that they are entitled to receive.  Currently, the office has secured $2.55 million in pension, disability and other benefits.  That amount is on pace to top the 2012-13 total of $2.846 million.
Many veterans and their families are unaware of what benefits are out there.  Veterans Affairs Director Robert Tuffy encourages former servicemen to contact the office to see what may be available to them.  The office staff will make an appointment with a veteran or his/her family to see what they may qualify for in benefits.
Also, the staff’s outreach representatives will visit veterans’ homes, if necessary, along with scheduling appointments at local nursing homes or assisted living facilities to discuss benefits. 
The office’s goal is to support all veterans and their families with whatever is needed.  If the office cannot provide assistance, the staff will be able to point people to where they can get the proper help. 
The Veterans Affairs Office is open from Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM and is located in The Scranton Electric Building, 507 Linden Street.  Along with Mr. Tuffy, the staff includes: veterans service officers Anissa Fetchen and Dave Eisele and office assistant Steuart Bailey.  The direct phone number is 570-963-6778.
