Military Discharge Recording
Our office records military discharges in association with the Chester County Veterans' Affairs Office. This process safeguards a veterans' documents in case of loss, misplacement or natural disaster so as to not risk the interruption or discontinuation of benefits for themselves and/or their families. After recordation, any hard copies containing sensitive information are destroyed and the digital images of these important documents are kept in a secure database on our server. This ensures that only the serviceperson, his or her immediate family*, or authorized military personnel or veterans' agencies will have access to these recorded documents at a later date. Military discharges are the only documents we maintain that are not made a part of the public record.
