Service Officer

April 2nd, 2009

Comrade Lizz Lindsay is the Service Officer for TVS Branch No. 44. The duties of a Branch Service Officer are many and varied. Some of the particular aspects of Legion service work are:

  • Disability Pensions (Widows included)
  • Treatment Regulations
  • Benevolent Funds
  • Legion Poppy Funds
  • War Veterans Allowance
  • Social Assistance
  • Burials, including CPC, VAC and Last Post Fund
  • Old Age Security and Guaranteed Income Supplement
  • Canada Pension Plan or Quebec Pension Plan
  • Housing
  • Veterans Independence Program

The Branch Service Officer is not expected to know all the details of Veterans’ legislation, etc. That is why the Legion employs both Provincial and Dominion Command Service Officers to assist in this regard.
