You have been in the army and served your country for so long, now it’s time for you to finally relax, spend some time with your loved ones, and enjoy the benefits you have earned. After all, you’ve contributed so much for the community It’s time to get your well-deserved break.
In this article, Twinsburg Bulletin shared the bonus program that will cover 100,ooo people who are most likely veterans.
Jeff Shull, a retired Navy chief petty officer who works alongside Weirick at the Wayne County vets services office, received a comparable check for his Gulf War service.
From the article, according to Jason Wilson, director of the Governor’s Office of Appalachia, “In my mind, it’s what we should do as citizens. We should support the people who go out and defend our country and go to foreign lands, in some cases to give their lives.” So as it seems, it’s a thank you to those who defended the country. It’s also a way to give them something in return, to make them get back on their feet after retiring from the army.
Next article is from Fox 8. They shared the tax-free benefit that could help support veterans and their surviving spouses.
Wartime veterans and their surviving spouses, 65 years and older, may be entitled to a tax-free benefit provided by the VA called Aid and Attendance.
Providing a tax-free aid to veterans, survivors including their spouses is a good way to help these veterans financially especially if they are already incapable of providing for themselves because of age or mental or physical incapacity. All thanks to VA’s Aid and Attendance, this is now possible to provide for these real life heroes to get the help they need after a long time of serving the country.
It is better to know and be informed in what you should expect after retiring as a soldier. So, what can you say about these benefits provided by the US government?
