​Maryland's Veterans Services Specialist Program

Did You Serve In The Military? Do You Have A Family Member Who Served In The Military? Learn More About The Veterans Services Specialist Program (VSS Program)

All Maryland State Government Departments and Agencies have a Veterans Services Specialist (VSS) or “liaison” who can provide general information to State employees who have served in the military or who have family members who have served in the military with information on veteran-related resources. They can also answer general questions citizens may have about these resources. The Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) Outreach and Advocacy Program works alongside liaisons to share information and improve veteran services coordination. Please contact your agency’s VSS with questions or inquiries. We are here to support our veteran community!

While the Maryland Department of Juvenile Services does not provide direct services to veterans, you may contact either the designated VSS or the MDVA Outreach and Advocacy Program if you have questions related to veteran benefits or services offered by other Departments/Agencies.

The Outreach and Advocacy Program is capable of discussing VA benefits and how to connect with a variety of veteran-related resources.
