Our office is here to provide VA-related information and assistance with filing claims for benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the State of NC, for Brunswick County residents.
We are located in building "F" in the Brunswick County Government Center in Bolivia, NC. (When you come into the main entrance and are at the stop sign, turn left onto Government Center Drive NE. Continue on this road, passing the Social Services building "B" on your right. After you pass building "B" the road curves and you will see a parking lot entrance on your right-hand side; this road/parking lot area is called Referendum Drive NE. Turn right into this parking lot area and follow the parking lot around until it brings you directly in front of building "F". When you come into the main double-glass door entrance, our office is the second door on the right.)
We are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 5 pm; certain holidays are the exception.
We prefer to schedule appointments when filing claims and completing paperwork as these procedures can sometimes be quite lengthy. Scheduling an appointment helps to ensure that you will be prepared with the information we need to complete the VA's detailed paperwork.
Appointments may be made by calling 910-253-2233.
