Ohio recently created a Veterans Bonus Program to thank Ohio Veterans who served during periods of conflict. Eligible veterans serving on active duty (except active duty for training) anywhere in the world during specified dates may receive $50 a month up to a maximum bonus of $500.
Please forward this information to any Ohio veterans you may know. Those who have been separated from the military for several years may not be aware of this benefit.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has released Federal Benefits for Veterans, Dependents and Survivors. This publication has information about health care, pensions, education and training, home loans, life insurance, transition assistance, and how to appeal a decision on a claim for benefits. This publication also includes a special chapter for Service-Connected Disabilities. The Federal Benefits for Veterans, Dependents and Survivors Booklet is a valuable tool to help veterans and their families navigate the world of federal benefits.
