The Mission of the South Hadley Veterans' Services Department is to help South Hadley Veterans, Surviving Spouses and their dependents access services that were earned by their military service. These services include records retrieval, pension and disability compensation, claims with the Department of Veterans Affairs, employment, training, education programs and bonus/annuity applications. Additionally, the department provides assistance to next of kin filing for Federal gravesite markers. Finally, Veterans Services administers Massachusetts Chapter 115, which is a needs-based program for qualifying veterans and their dependents who are residents of South Hadley to provide assistance to defray the cost of everyday living expenses.
