Pension

The Veterans Services Office is moving to a new location!

Beginning June 25, 2021, the Wilkes County Veterans Services Office will be located in the Wilkes County Agricultural Center located at:

 416 Executive Drive, Wilkesboro, NC 28697

Veterans Services will be closed on June 23 and June 24 during the transition process. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Veterans with low income may be eligible for monetary support if they have 90 days or more of active military service, one day of which was during a period of war. The discharge from active duty must have been under conditions other than dishonorable.

The veteran must be permanently and totally disabled for reasons not traceable to willful misconduct. Payments are made to qualified veterans to bring their total income, including other retirement or may be reduced by un-reimbursed medical expenses. Pension is not payable to those who have assets that can be used to provide adequate maintenance.
