CMC Veterans’ Bureau Provides Number of Services & Benefits

By

The Cape May County Veterans’ Bureau was established shortly after World War II by the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders to aid and assist veterans, widows and their families. The Bureau works to provide services to countywide veterans to eliminate the need to travel long distances to obtain veterans’ benefits, program information and assistance.
The Bureau is certified and accredited by the VA to draft claims on behalf of local veterans seeking assistance, as well as assist in applying for the following benefits:

  • Burial Allowances
  • Compensation
  • Correction/Review of Military Records
  • Educational Benefits
  • Fare Free Transportation
  • Government Life Insurance
  • Grave Markers
  • Lost Discharges/DD Form 214/Request for Military Service Medals
  • Non-Service Connected Pension
  • Veterans’ Photo ID Cards
  • VA Healthcare

For more information on any of these benefits and the application process, please contact the Cape May County Veterans’ Bureau at (609) 886-2762.
The Bureau also works to educate local veterans on the New Jersey State Property Tax Deduction which many are eligible for. Veterans that have served during specific dates and own a primary residence in New Jersey are eligible for up to $250 in tax deduction. To apply, a veteran must present his or her discharge/DD Form 214 to the tax assessor in his or her town/city of residence. For further information, contact the Cape May County Board of Taxation at (609) 465-1030.
