Keep DD-214’s on File at the Westchester County Clerk’s Office

WHITE PLAINS, NY: As the nation prepares to celebrate Veterans Day commemorating the valor and service of our United States military men and women, Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni reminds Westchester County veterans of an important service available at his office. Veterans can keep copies of their military discharge papers on file at the County Clerk’s Office for safe keeping, free of charge.   


“Important documents, such as military discharge papers, can sometimes get lost or damaged,” began Idoni whose office maintains and preserves official documents and records for Westchester County.  “However, I want our veterans to consider the option to keep copies of their DD-214 military discharge papers on file at my office for safe-keeping.  If a copy is ever needed, the veteran, an immediate family member, a representative of their estate, and in certain instances a public official, can get a certified copy upon request.”


It takes only a few minutes to file a copy, free of charge of DD-214 military discharge papers with the County Clerk’s office.  Veterans should bring the original to the Legal Division of the office, where the clerk’s staff will make a digital copy. The copy is then sealed to protect and preserve privacy, filed, and the original returned to the veteran before they leave the office.


The staff at the Office of the Westchester County Clerk is available to assist veterans if they have any questions by calling (914)995-3070. The office, which is located at the 110 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. in White Plains, is open from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays. Information is also available on the County Clerk website at www.westchesterclerk.com.
