Veterans who have misplaced or lost their discharge papers, and did not previously file them with the Westchester County Clerk, may call our agency for replacement assistance at (914) 995-2145.

We firmly encourage all veterans to file a copy of their military discharge papers with the Westchester County Clerk’s office. This important document will be saved in perpetuity and should the veteran ever misplace or damage the document, an image can be provided, free of charge, by the Clerk.

Military Law section 250 has provided for the County Clerk to serve as a safe and local depository for your military records, which are kept sealed for privacy protection purposes. Please note that only the veteran, an immediate family member, a representative of the estate of a deceased veteran, or a public official acting within the scope of his or her employment may obtain a copy of any filed DD-214.

To file, bring your original DD-214 to the Legal Division of the Office of the Westchester County Clerk. It will be copied and returned to you immediately. The office is located at 110 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., Room 330 in White Plains and can be reached by entering through the Richard J. Daronco Courthouse entrance. The office is open Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays, from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Questions? Call the Clerk’s office (914) 995-3070.
