According to the Veterans Affairs, the State of Texas has the highest number of Women Veterans in the country. Travis County is home to over 6,500 women veterans who have served in the Armed Forces. Travis County Veterans Service Office is committed to assisting women veterans in all aspects of VA benefits. We can provide an overview of VA services such as women’s health care and counseling and assist with navigating the system. We also have well-established, reliable, community relationships to assist our women veterans in the Travis County with employment, and financial assistance for those who qualify. We have woman veteran benefits’ counselors on board to assist women veterans that may feel more comfortable speaking to another women veteran when filling a disability claim or discussing other issues.
