Combatting Scams, Exploitation Involving Veterans Benefits

There are nearly 800,000 veterans in Pennsylvania and over half of them are age 60 and older. 

Veterans may be eligible for a wide array of benefits from both the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (commonly referred to as the VA). One such benefit is a VA pension. 

Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous people who are preying on veterans, particularly older veterans, to profit from their desire to apply for the benefits they earned while defending our country and our freedoms. 

The DMVA wants you to know that free and safe assistance is available to help veterans and their beneficiaries apply for veteran benefits, including VA pension.

Cameron County supports DMVA's efforts and are available for any inquiries.  Contact our Director of Veteran's Affairs, Joseph Williams, via phone @ 814-389-5972 or e-mail @ 

Together we can reduce the likelihood of scams, fraud and exploitation against our veterans and their benefits!
