Des Moines, Iowa Veterans Affairs
Des Moines County Veterans Affairs Office was established per Chapter 35B of the Code of Iowa. The Commission was established to assist all Des Moines County Veterans who have other than a dishonorable discharge and served on active duty at least 90 consecutive days. We also serve the veteran's spouses and dependent children. Monetary relief can be given to indigent veterans to assist with bills pertaining to rent, utilities, clothing, medical treatment, food, and funerals.
Assistance is also given to help veterans and their dependents to file for VA pensions/compensation, to apply for admission to the Iowa Veterans Home, and to get help from the VA Hospitals.
