Vets boast of state benefits in Texas

Some vets and workers within the systems that handle veteran's benefits are boasting that Texas is top among states when it comes to offering assistance to veterans. Veteran outreach in the state includes a number of programs that offer assistance with mental and physical disabilities, homes, education and more.

One program that offers assistance to vets is the Disabled American Veterans. The DAV helps with issues related to post-traumatic stress disorder, physical injury and emotional and mental stress that veterans might experience. They also help by providing education and education benefits to veterans.

A veteran in the state notes that Texas provides more benefits than many other states. He said that extra educational assistance was just one way Texas helped vets. The state also has programs to help with improvements and renovations to homes, loans to purchase land or homes and support for those seeking reentry into a civilian workforce. Some programs help veterans seek lower-rate loans for homes and land.

One of the issues facing many of these benefits organization is getting the word out to veterans that they might qualify for such assistance. Many times, the agencies offering such support count on veteran organizations at the local level to get the word out about programs.

As a veteran, understanding what benefits you might qualify for is important. Staying on top of benefits and your rights as a vet becomes even more important as you age. In later years, you might need to rely on health and assisted living benefits that you are eligible for as a veteran, and those benefits aren't always offered without some legal action on your part.
