Bucks County Recorder of Deeds Office to Offer Veterans Discount Cards at Four Upcoming Locations
Since its launch in November, 2011, the Bucks County Veterans ID Discount Card program has processed approximately 2,000 cards for county veterans. The program, which first was available only at the Recorder of Deeds office on the second floor of the Bucks County Courthouse, will be offered at four locations around the county during March. Those dates and locations include:
- March 9, 2012 (10 a.m.-1 p.m.): Quakertown Library, 401 West Mill St., Quakertown, PA 1895-1248
- March 15, 2012 (6 p.m.-9 p.m.): 800 Coates Ave., Bristol, PA

- March 27, 2012 (10 a.m.-): Bensalem Senior Center, 1850 Byberry Rd., Bensalem, PA 19020
“We are pleased to offer our veterans and active duty heroes the opportunity to have their cards processed in other Bucks County municipalities,” stated Bucks County Recorder of Deeds Joseph J. Szafran Jr., whose staff administrates the program. “During a February event in Bristol, we processed more than 80 cards.”
Interested veterans must bring their original DD-214 form in order for the Recorder of Deeds staff to proceed with issuing the cards. Information about the program is available by calling 215-348-6209.
To date, more than 50 Bucks County businesses have agreed to offer substantial veterans discounts (5-20 percent on merchandise and services) to those holding the Bucks County Veterans ID card, and more are signing up to participate each day.
