Office of Veterans Affairs


The Mission of the Paramus Office of Veteran Affairs is to advise resident veterans, their families, and dependents of benefits earned through honorable active duty in the U.S Military, and to provide guidance and assistance in searching for appropriate applications for veteran's needs and benefits.  The Office of Veteran Affairs was established by Mayor Richard A. LaBarbiera at the reorganization meeting of the Paramus Mayor and Council, January 6, 2013.

Photo Identification

Paramus Veterans may now apply for a Paramus Photo Identification (ID) card (PDF). With this card Veteran’s may be eligible for discounts at retail location such as Home Depot and Lowes Home Improvements. The Office of Veterans Affairs is in the process of contact other retail and service businesses to give Veterans a discount. When a list is compiled, it will be posted.

Please note: With your Paramus Veterans ID card you can also get discounts at Paramus Municipal Pool, Golf Course registration fees and Paramus Recreation fees. Simply show your card at these venues to receive their discounts. Veterans no longer required to fill out a Vet and Vol Discount Form as long as they have their photo ID card.
