For the health and safety of staff and those we serve, appointments with Veterans Service Office staff will continue to be over telephone or video conference whenever possible. Although our department lobbies in Cottage Grove, Forest Lake, and Stillwater are open, there is limited capacity.
When required, in-person meetings are by appointment only.
To schedule an appointment, call your worker or 651-430-6895.
