SCHEDULED APPOINTMENTS ARE THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO ENSURE THAT YOU WILL BE SEEN. Please note that all appointments are given a 10-minute grace period. It will be inferred that the client chose to cancel the appointment if the client is not available within 10 minutes of the scheduled start time. Please call ahead or email if you need to cancel your scheduled appointment. DIC, NSC, and SURVIVOR PENSION CLAIMS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

WALK-IN CLIENTS ARE SEEN ON A FIRST-COME-FIRST-SERVED BASIS. Walk-in clients please note that time with the client(s) preceding you can run from just a few minutes to over an hour, or more, depending on the client’s particular need(s) and health considerations. PLEASE HAVE ANY AND ALL PAPERWORK RELATED TO YOUR CLAIM WITH YOU WHEN YOU ARRIVE.

STANDING COMMITMENTS: All efforts are made to be available, in office, as often as possible to meet client needs however, the Fannin County Veterans Services Officer has current standing commitments in the community that require out-of-office attention.
