Veteran benefits scheduled to increase in January
Good news, readers! As of Tuesday, November 13th, 2012, a bill has been passed by the Senate to increase benefits paid to veterans by 1.7 percent a month! With over four million veterans and their survivors eligible for this increase, this is something we can all be thankful for. The bill is now headed to the desk of President Barack Obama for his signature. If the President acts quickly, the increase can begin at the beginning of next year.
Our veterans who are out of work will have a bit of a helping hand with this increase. In the current economical landscape, any boost to help keep them afloat will be much appreciated. Although we would all like to see a better job initiative for our vets, the passing of this bill does show us that the government is paying attention to our needs and help is on the horizon.
For more on this bill, you can see the original article at The Examiner.
