The San Diego Regional Office provides benefit services for over 600,000 veterans and their dependents in the Southern California Counties of Imperial, Orange, Riverside and San Diego. These benefits totaling approximately $800 million annually, include compensation payments for disabilties or death related to military service, pension based on financial need and vocational rehabilitation and counseling services.
Situated in the heart of Mission Valley, the Regional Office is easily accessible from all major freeways and can be reached by personal vehicle, bus or trolley within minutes from any point in the city. Since the Regional Office shares occupancy of the building with a VA Outpatient Clinic and the Employment Development Department of the State of California, it truly offers a one stop "Service Center".
