March 12 – The Westmoreland County Department of Veterans Affairs will open a satellite office in Monessen beginning May 15. It will be open the third Wednesday of every month.
The satellite office will be located at the county’s Area Agency on Aging center at 11 B Seventh Street.
Clients can schedule an appointment by calling the Veterans Affairs central office at 724.830.3530. Business hours for the new site will be 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The office will be closed from 12:00 noon until 1:00 p.m. for lunch. To best serve clients, walk-ins are discouraged.
Services offered at the location include claims for state and federal veterans’ benefits and benefit counseling.
“This office will better serve Westmoreland veterans and their families residing in the Mon Valley,” said Commissioner Ted Kopas. “Given the popularity and success of our New Kensington satellite office, I have no doubt this new service in Monessen will be well-received.”
