The mission of the Lewis County Veterans Service Agency (LCVSA) is to provide information and help Veterans, Family Members, and Active Military members obtain assistance and benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
The LCVSA is open 9:30 to 4:30, Monday through Friday. There are no fees for LCVSA services and all matters are strictly confidential. LCVSA is located on the first floor of the Lewis County Court House, 7660 North State Street, Lowville, NY. Appointments are not necessary but recommended as specific documents and information may be required.
Most local decisions regarding VA benefits are made at Buffalo Regional Office (VARO). That office supports a 31 county region surrounding Buffalo, New York. If you move to a new area, you should request your file be moved to the corresponding RO.
Service-connected disability ratings are not always permanent. If the condition worsens, a rating increase can be requested. The LCVSA will apply for this upon notice.
Many veterans are eligible for health care from VA. To apply, contact VSA for application form and assistance. Veterans may pay a co-pay if treated by VA.
