National Service Organizations

Besides the VA, the recognized National Service Organizations (NSOs) are the voice of veterans locally and in Washington D.C. These men and women can work and act as your Power of Attorney (POA) for claims before the Veterans Administration (VA). Using a POA is FREE of CHARGE to a veteran or their dependents. NSOs only have access to the information that the veteran or dependents have willingly submitted to the VA.
