Every town or district in Massachusetts has a Veterans’ Service Officer (VSO). VSOs must assist veterans and their dependents in learning about, applying for, and receiving Chapter 115 benefits. VSOs can also help you in applying for other benefits and connecting with local resources.
We are working to make sure all eligible veterans and their dependents get the benefits they need at this time. Your answers to this quick survey about your experience applying for Chapter 115 will help us.
If you have any problems contacting your VSO, submitting an application for Chapter 115 benefits, or receiving your benefits, you should contact DVS directly to seek assistance with your application. DVS can be reached at:
Mail: 600 Washington Street, 7th Floor, Boston, MA 02111
Massachusetts provides cash assistance to eligible veterans, as well as their dependents and survivors, under a program called Chapter 115.
